Essential hypertension causes high rates of morbidity and mortality, primarily due to its complications, and its development is regulated by genetic risk and environmental factors. However, until recent genomewide association studies (GWASs) were reported, the genetic factors were unknown. Two GWASs on systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP) and hypertension in Caucasians-Global Blood Pressure Genetics (Global BPgen) and Cohorts for Heart and Aging Research in Genome Epidemiology (CHARGE)-reported 51 single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in 12 loci at P<4 x 10(-7). Because the prevalence, age of onset and severity of complications of hypertension vary between ethnic groups, we wanted to investigate these results in other ethnic groups. We examined the association of 27 of the 51 SNPs in 8512 unrelated individuals from Korean Association REsource (KARE), a GWAS that was based on epidemiological cohorts in Korea. Four loci-ATP2B1 (ATPase, Ca(++) transporting, plasma membrane 1), CSK (c-src tyrosine kinase), CYP17A1 (cytochrome P450 17A1) and PLEKHA7 (pleckstrin homology domain-containing family A member 7)-were associated with blood pressure and hypertension in the Korean population.
