The susceptibility gene screening in a Chinese high-altitude pulmonary edema family by whole-exome sequencing.


High-altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE) is one of idiopathic mountain sicknesses that occur in healthy lowlanders when they quickly ascend to altitudes exceeding 2500 m above sea levels within 1-7 days. Growing evidence suggests that genetics plays an important role in the risk of HAPE. In this study, we recruited a Chinese HAPE family and screened genetic… (More)
