This is a Ph.D. dissertation. Along the lines of prespecified pathophysiological hypotheses, the present research explored in Caucasians and Chinese to what extent blood pressure and associated phenotypes were related to variation in 4 candidate genes implicated in sodium homeostasis.

Contents include: Introduction, Candidate genes and blood pressure or hypertension, Candidate genes and intermediate phenotypes related to blood pressure, Candidate genes and target organ damage - renal dysfunction, General discussion and perspectives, Summary.
