The G501C polymorphism of oxidized LDL receptor gene [OLR-1] is associated with susceptibility and serum C-reactive protein concentration in Chinese essential hypertensives.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Oxidized LDL receptor gene 1 (OLR-1) polymorphism is reportedly associated with several cardiovascular conditions. However, its relationship with essential hypertension remains unknown. The aim of this study is to explore the association of OLR-1 polymorphism at position 501 in the open reading frame (G501C), with the susceptibility of essential… (More)
