Pro12Ala polymorphism in PPAR gamma 2 associated with essential hypertension in Chinese nonagenarians/centenarians.


The Pro12Ala polymorphism of PPAR gamma 2 has been shown to influence hypertension and the benefit of longevity in previous studies. We examined whether the polymorphism was related to essential hypertension among long-lived subjects (is greater than 90 years). The Pro12Ala variant was examined using polymerase chain reaction restriction fragment length… (More)
