P. Y. Chang, Qin, L., Zhao, P., and Liu, Z. Y., Association of regulator of G protein signaling (RGS5) gene variants and essential hypertension in Mongolian and Han populations, vol. 14, pp. 17641-17650, 2015.

Genetic variants of the RGS5 gene are believed to be risk factors for hypertension and cardiovascular diseases. In this study, we investigated the association between RGS5 gene variants and hypertension in the Mongolian and Han populations. Peripheral blood was obtained from 429 unrelated Mongolian herdsmen and 416 Han farmers [including essential hypertension (EH) patients and controls].
