African Americans have an endothelial dysfunction that likely contributes to their high prevalence of hypertension. Endothelial cell (EC) responses to stimuli could play a role in the development of endothelial dysfunction and hypertension. High physiological levels of vascular laminar shear stress can alter EC phenotype profoundly. It is not known whether there are race-dependent EC responses to laminar shear stress.
