Hypertension is a complex disease that results from the interaction of genetic and environmental influences and heritability is influenced by about one-third to one-half. However, the specific genetic variants determining risk for hypertension are still largely unknown. Here, we performed association analysis to elucidate the possible relations of genetic polymorphisms in ESR1 gene with blood pressure traits. By examining genotype data of a total of 3,804 women in the Korean Association REsource (KARE) study, we discovered the ESR1 gene polymorphisms are associated with blood pressure and hypertension. The highest significant polymorphisms were rs2982571 (β=-1.56, P=6.8 × 10-3) with systolic blood pressure (SBP), rs9322335 (β=-0.61, P=0.013) with diastolic blood pressure (DBP), and rs851985 (OR=0.78, CI: 0.65~0.94, P=8.6 × 10-3) with hypertension. In the 5 SNPs (rs2982571, rs851985, rs851983, rs851981, and rs851980), their β-values in SBP and/or DBP showed consistent trends with the odds ratios (ORs) of hypertension, and these 5 SNPs were composed with one LD block. Consequently, we found statistically significant SNPs in ESR1 gene that are associated with both blood pressure and hypertension traits. These results suggested that the individuals with the minor alleles of the 5 SNPs in the ESR1 gene may be less susceptible to the development of hypertension in the Korean women.
