Expression of STK39 in peripheral blood of hypertension patients and the relationship between its genetic polymorphism and blood pressure

B. Li, Yang, M., and Liu, J. W., Expression of STK39 in peripheral blood of hypertension patients and the relationship between its genetic polymorphism and blood pressure, vol. 14, pp. 16461-16468, 2015.

This study investigated the STK39 expression in peripheral blood of hypertension patients and the relation between its genetic polymorphism and blood pressure. The observation group comprised of 42 primary hypertension patients admitted to our hospital, and the control group comprised of 30 healthy individuals who underwent physical examination in our hospital during the same period. Fasting venous blood was collected from both groups in the morning to determine the STK39 mRNA and protein levels in peripheral blood using quantitative real-time PCR and western blot.
