Résumé : The chromosomal location of candidate genes for a disease, especially if the disease is multifactorial, is an important datum. The objective of the present study was to determine the chromosomal location of candidate hypertensinogenic genes, both in humans and in the rat, a species widely used for animal models of human hypertension. The type 1 angiotensin II receptor (AT1) genes are obvious hypertension candidate genes, whereas the SA gene has recently been shown to cosegregate with hypertension in the rat.
