Table 3 Baseline and absolute changes in mean blood pressure and heart rate during mental stress before and after a high-fat meal in individuals with the Glu27Glu and Gln27Gln β2-adrenoceptor gene.

From: A high-fat meal impairs muscle vasodilatation response to mental stress in humans with Glu27 β2-adrenoceptor polymorphism
