Abstract

Transgenic mice and rats have become popular tools to study the regulation of gene expression and the consequences of protein over-production. Over the past decade, numerous transgenic models have been developed to study the mechanisms of human renin gene expression and the participation of the renin-angiotensin system in the development of hypertension. Herein we will provide an overview of what has been learned from the use of transgenic models for studying the human renin gene.
