Glu298Asp polymorphism of the endothelial nitric oxide synthase gene in Turkish patients with ischemic stroke

The low plasma nitric oxide concentrations and reduced vascular reactivity are considered major proatherogenic mechanisms in cardiovascular diseases. The present study aimed to assess the allelic frequency and the genotypic distribution of the Glu298Asp gene polymorphism at exon 7 of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) gene in Turkish ischemic stroke… (More)
