Conclusions And Perspectives

Hypertension is a polygenic disease, and most probably multiple genes are involved in the etiology of this disease in different ethnic groups. Although initial studies, based on microsatellite markers, had shown that renin, ACE, and angiotensin receptor type 1 genes are not involved in hypertension, recent studies have suggested that certain polymorphic variants of renin and angiotensin receptor may be involved in human essential hypertension (64). It is also important to mention that other genes such as adducin (65), P2-adrenergic receptor (66), and G protein P3 subunit (67) have also been suggested to be involved in human hypertension. It will be important to examine whether interaction of these genes leads to hypertension.
