|Title:||Association of WNK1 gene polymorphisms and haplotypes with ambulatory blood pressure in the general population.|
|Citation:||CIRCULATION, 2005, 112 (22), pp. 3423-3429|
|Abstract:||Blood pressure (BP) is a heritable trait of major public health concern. The WNK1 and WNK4 genes, which encode proteins in the WNK family of serine-threonine kinases, are involved in renal electrolyte homeostasis. Mutations in the WNK1 and WNK4 genes cause a rare monogenic hypertensive syndrome, pseudohypoaldosteronism type II. We investigated whether polymorphisms in these WNK genes influence BP in the general population.|
