The study was designed to assess the effects of polymorphisms in genes associated with essential hypertension on the variation of erythrocyte membrane proteins (EMPs) in hypertensive patients. Major EMPs content was analyzed in blood from 1162 unrelated Russians (235 hypertensive patients, 176 healthy controls, and 751 random individuals from the Central Russia population). Essential hypertension patients were genotyped for 11 polymorphisms of essential hypertension susceptibility genes including ADD1 (rs4961), GNB3 (rs5443, rs16932941), NOS3 (rs1799983, rs2070744), ACE (rs5186), AGTR1 (rs5186), AGT (rs699, rs4762), MR (rs5534), and TGFB1 (rs1800471). EMP contents and their relationship with the genetic loci were analyzed using various statistical tests. Sex-specific differences in EMP contents between the cases and controls were observed. Regardless of sex, hypertensives exhibited mainly decreased levels of alpha (SPTA1) and beta-spectrin (SPTB) and increased levels of glucose transporter (GLUT1) as compared with healthy subjects (P ≤ 0.001). EMP correlated differently in essential hypertension patients and controls. Almost 70% of the joint variation in the EMP levels is explained by five gender-specific principal components. ...Continue Reading

Birth Defects

Birth defects encompass structural and functional alterations that occur during embryonic or fetal development and are present since birth. The cause may be genetic, environmental or unknown and can result in physical and/or mental impairment. Here is the latest research on birth defects.
