OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect of gene polymorphisms in hypoxia-inducible factor 1α (HIF-1α) in left ventricular hypertrophy of hypertensive patients.
PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 583 hypertensive patients were divided into two groups, with left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH (+), 198 cases) and without left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH (-), 385 cases). Polymerase Chain Reaction restriction fragment length polymorphism was used to detect the single nucleotide gene polymorphisms rs11549465, rs11549467 and rs1957757 in HIF-1α.
RESULTS: The distribution differences of gene frequencies for rs11549465, rs11549467 and rs1957757 in HIF1A single nucleotide gene polymorphisms for LVH (+) and LVH (-) were statistically significant (p<0.05). The T allele of rs11549465 loci and the G allele of rs11549467 loci increased the risk of LVH, related to the increased plasma expression of HIF-1α (p<0.05).
CONCLUSIONS: Gene polymorphism of HIF-1α were related to primary hypertensive left ventricular hypertrophy, and the expression of rs11549467 correlated with the increasing concentration of plasma HIF-1α.
