These include genes of renin (R14+17G), angiotensinogen (AGT), angiotensin receptors (AGTR1, AGTR2), ACE and endothelial NOS (eNOS), endothelin-1 (BsiY1) and kallikrein (S1386A, A1789G), aldosterone (SYP11B2), ([beta]1-adrenoceptor (ADR[beta]1), catecholamines metabolism enzymes genes, glucagon, II [beta]-hydroxylase, genes associated with insulin resistance (PC-1 k121q, PPAR-g2), etc.
For instance, CC2D1A, TRAPPC9 (on autosome) and AGTR2, GDI1 ( on X chromosome) are involved in signal transduction and in some case they share the common pathway (Table -2).
La angiotensina II interactua con dos tipos de receptores de la superficie celular, tipo 1 y tipo 2, codificados por los genes AGTR1 y AGTR2, de los cuales el primero es el mas importante, ya que su expresion aumentada induce hipertrofia del miocardio e HTA (11); desde el punto de vista farmacologico, los antagonistas del receptor 1, como el losartan, son efectivos en el tratamiento de la HTA dependiente de angiotensina II.
