Abstract

Objectives: It is possible that altered control of aldosterone synthase gene (CYP11B2) expression or translation may be responsible for. hypertension. Hypertension is one of the major components of preeclampsia. We present here a study investigating the association between the CYP11B2 gene polymorphism in the promoter region at the position of -344 and preeclampsia.
