The endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) gene plays an important role in regulating vascular tone and blood pressure. Recently, the eNOS G894T and T-786C single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) were intensively studied with regard to their associations with hypertension. However, the results of these studies were inconsistent. Therefore, we conducted the… CONTINUE READING
