Intronic ANG II type 2 receptor gene polymorphism 1675 G/A modulates receptor protein expression but not mRNA splicing.


The X-linked ANG II type 2 receptor (AT2) is supposed to be involved in cardiovascular disorders. Two studies associated the A allele of the AT2 gene polymorphism (PM) 1675 G/A with left ventricular hypertrophy in men and coronary ischemia in women. Because the PM is located in the short intron 1 of the AT2 gene within a sequence motif similar to the splice… (More)
