Correlation between natriuretic peptide receptor C (NPR3) gene polymorphisms and hypertension in the Dai people of China

H. Sun, Yang, Z. Q., Liu, S. Y., Yu, L., Huang, K., Lin, K. Q., Chu, J. Y., and Huang, X. Q., Correlation between natriuretic peptide receptor C (NPR3) gene polymorphisms and hypertension in the Dai people of China, vol. 14, pp. 8786-8795, 2015.

Hypertension affects one-fifth of the world population. Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified several single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that correlated with hyper­tension in large samples. However, the genetic mutations leading to hypertension might differ among various populations, as they have dif­ferent origins and are subjected to different environmental pressures. Therefore, additional studies are urgently needed to verify the GWAS findings across different populations.
