A Search for Genetic Loci Responsible for Stress-Induced Arterial Hypertension in the ISIAH Rats

A Search for Genetic Loci Responsible for Stress-Induced Arterial Hypertension in the ISIAH Rats Hypertension is a widespread human disease caused by a complex interaction of a series of the genetic factors with both each other and the environmental conditions. In this study we aimed at determining the candidate genetic loci responsible for hypertension in the ISIAH rats and studying the dynamics of the relevant genetic and physiological mechanisms in rat ontogeny. The candidate genetic loci were identified from association of the microsatellite markers linked to these loci with arterial hypertension in rat F2 hybrids exposed to stress. Two populations of F2 hybrids of different age (3–4 and 6 months) were obtained by crossing hypertensive ISIAH and normotensive WAG rats. We present the results of cosegregation analysis for the following loci: the gene for the Na+, K+-ATPase alpha 1 subunit (Atp1a1), the endothelin-2 gene (Edn2), the low affinity nerve growth factor receptor gene (Lngfr), and a region of chromosome 10 marked with the D10Rat58 microsatellile located 3 cM away of the aldolase C gene (AldC). The results obtained allowed us to localize the genes responsible for the stress-induced arterial hypertension in the ISIAH rats to the Atp1a1locus (P < 0.05), chromosome 2 and to the Lngfr gene locus (P < 0.05), chromosome 10. The association of hypertensive status with the Lngfr gene was found only in young ISIAH rats whereas in adult rats of this strain, hypertension was associated with the Atp1a1locus. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Genetics Springer Journals

Abstract

Hypertension is a widespread human disease caused by a complex interaction of a series of the genetic factors with both each other and the environmental conditions. In this study we aimed at determining the candidate genetic loci responsible for hypertension in the ISIAH rats and studying the dynamics of the relevant genetic and physiological mechanisms in rat ontogeny. The candidate genetic loci were identified from association of the microsatellite markers linked to these loci with arterial hypertension in rat F2 hybrids exposed to stress. Two populations of F2 hybrids of different age (3–4 and 6 months) were obtained by crossing hypertensive ISIAH and normotensive WAG rats. We present the results of cosegregation analysis for the following loci: the gene for the Na+, K+-ATPase alpha 1 subunit (Atp1a1), the endothelin-2 gene (Edn2), the low affinity nerve growth factor receptor gene (Lngfr), and a region of chromosome 10 marked with the D10Rat58 microsatellile located 3 cM away of the aldolase C gene (AldC). The results obtained allowed us to localize the genes responsible for the stress-induced arterial hypertension in the ISIAH rats to the Atp1a1locus (P < 0.05), chromosome 2 and to the Lngfr gene locus (P < 0.05), chromosome 10. The association of hypertensive status with the Lngfr gene was found only in young ISIAH rats whereas in adult rats of this strain, hypertension was associated with the Atp1a1locus.
