Alu insertion/deletion of ACE gene polymorphism might not affect significantly the serum bradykinin level in hypertensive patients taking ACE inhibitors

Background: Angiotensin I-converting enzyme (ACE) has two homologous catalytic domains, the N- and C-domains. Our previous study suggested that Alu insertion (I allele) in the intron 16 of ACE resulted in premature codon termination. The I allele has only one active site in the N-domain while the Al...
