Blood pressure is a complex quantitative trait that is determined by multiple environmental and genetic factors. Although some simple Mendelian forms of high blood pressure have been described, essential hypertension is characterized by a complex mode of inheritance. Based on recent advances in molecular biology and statistical genetics, it has become feasible to search for chromosome regions that may contain genes contributing to the pathogenesis of hypertension in humans. For example, recent… CONTINUE READING
