rs4149601 has been associated with hypertension. This SNP by itself was associated with diastolic blood pressure (DBP) (p=0.03) and DBP progression over time (p=0.04); in genotypic combination with intronic NEDD4L SNP rs2288774 it was associated with systolic blood pressure (SBP) (p=0.01), DBP (p=0.04), and progression of both SBP (p=0.03) and DBP (p=0.05) over time.[PMID 16788695]
