OBJECTIVES The beta2-adrenoceptor (ADRB2) plays a pivotal role in signalling in relation to hypertension and obesity. Polymorphisms of the ADRB2 gene have been shown to be potentially related to essential hypertension and other non-cardiovascular disease phenotypes. We investigated whether genetic variation of the ADRB2 gene might be related to essential hypertension or myocardial infarction (MI). METHODS Four ADRB2 gene polymorphisms C19R (T-47C), T-20C, G16R (G+46A), Q27E (C+79G) were… CONTINUE READING
