Synopsis and data synthesis of genetic association studies in hypertension for the adrenergic receptor family genes: the CUMAGAS-HYPERT database.

BACKGROUND The adrenergic receptor (adrenoceptor) family genes have been extensively studied as candidate genes in hypertension but the results of individual genetic association studies (GAS) are controversial and inconclusive. To clarify these data, a systematic assessment of GAS for adrenoceptor family genes in hypertension was conducted. METHODS Data… (More)
