Abstract


Vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene is recognized as candidate gene for susceptibility to several disease such cardiovascular disease, or arterial hypertension (AHT). The main objective of this study was to investigate a possible association between polymorphisms of the VDR gene and AHT among Moroccan patients. Materials and Methods: 177 clinically diagnosed AHT patients and 222 healthy controls from the Moroccans population were recruited. Bsm-I(rs1544410), Fok-I(rs10735810) and Apa-I (rs7975232) single nucleotide polymorphisms(SNPS) of VDR gene were analyzed using PCR-RFLP reaction. A Vitamin D level was determined using ELISA. Results: Fok-I polymorphism had a strong association with AHT in all genetics models. It was found that FF carriers tend to have higher HDL-c levels than the ff genotypes (55.30
