STRESS AND THE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE LINK

This collaborative research found a link between a novel gene, known as ‘phosducin’ and the blood pressure response to stress.  This stress-related gene is associated with modulating high blood pressure.  These results were found to be prevalent both in mice and in human subjects.
