angiotensin-converting enzymepolymorphismaltitudeoxygen saturation
There is a significant genetic influence on arterial oxygen saturation (SaO(2)) in high-altitude (HA) residents. It is not known whether this is true of lowlanders ascending to HA. The I allele of the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) gene is associated with low ACE activity and elite endurance performance. An excess of the 1 allele has...More
