Association of Lys173Arg polymorphism with CYP11B2 expression in normal adrenal glands and aldosterone-producing adenomas.
CYP11B2, the gene encoding aldosterone synthase, has several frequent polymorphisms. In particular, the Lys173Arg (K173R) polymorphism is in complete genetic linkage disequilibrium with the -344T/C polymorphism in the promoter of CYP11B2 that involves a binding site for the steroidogenic factor-1 transcription factor. These polymorphisms have been associated with cardiovascular parameters, including hypertension, but not directly with gene expression.
