Objective: G protein is one of the most important regulators of intracellular signaling pathways. C825T polymorphism of G protein (33 subunit is associated with increased intracellular signal transduction. The 825T allele has been found associated with a variety of cardiovascular risk factors, including hypertension. The aim of the present study was to investigate the association between the C825T polymorphism of the G protein beta 3 subunit and essential hypertension in Turkish population.
