The p22(phox) subunit is an essential protein in the activation of NAD(P)H oxidase. Here we report the preliminary characterisation of the human p22(phox) gene promoter. The p22(phox) promoter contains TATA and CCAC boxes and Sp1, gamma-interferon and nuclear factor kappaB sites. We screened for mutations in the p22(phox) promoter and identified a new polymorphism, localised at position -930 from the ATG codon, which was associated with hypertension. Mutagenesis experiments showed that the G… CONTINUE READING
