The role of calcium in genetic hypertension.

  title={The role of calcium in genetic hypertension.},
  author={Kim Lau and B K Eby},
  volume={7 5},
T HE importance of the calcium ion in muscle contractility and in the optimal functions of the cardiovascular and neurological systems has been recognized since the time of Ringer. A huge body of research data has been generated investigating various facets of the control of blood pressure, including the role of calcium in the biochemistry and physiology of contractile proteins. Interests have been renewed over the past decade on the role of calcium in genetic hypertension at the molecular as… CONTINUE READING
