It has been suggested that the insertion(I) allele of the I/deletion(D) polymorphism of the angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) gene is associated with endurance exercise and increased physical conditioning in response to this type of exercise. To investigate the association between the ACE I/D polymorphism and physical activity status in 355 never treated, stage I hypertensives (265 men, 90 women, mean age: 33 +/- 9 years), in whom power exercise is contraindicated, participants of the HARVEST… CONTINUE READING
