  1. *Significant values were obtained through one-way ANOVA between agroups of genotypes, eamong males between groups of genotypes and famong females between groups of genotypes.
  2. §Significant values were obtained through Student T-test between bnormotensive males and females, chypertensive males and females, dmales and females, and gnormotensive and hypertensive subjects.
