This study aimed to investigate the relationship of HOMA-IR (homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance) to polymorphic variants of Clock and Bmal1 genes in Chinese patients with essential hypertension. Methods: A total of 334 outpatients with essential hypertension (103 patients of HOMA-IR positive and 231 patients of HOMA-IR negative) were recruited to analyze Clock T3111C and Bmal1 A1420G genotypes with DNA sequencing approach. Results: Waist circumference, body mass index, glycated hemoglobin, total cholesterol, triglyceride, and plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 were significantly increased, while high-density...
