- Polymorphism, angiotensin-converting enzyme gene
The practical difference of the body metabolism plays a very substantial role in determining the kind of sport suitable for an athlete. One of the gene variations considered to control the po-tentials of an athlete is the gene variation of Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme (ACE) symbolised as I and D. The ACE-I is responsible for the formation of the red muscles (slow twitch) and the ACE-D is in charge of forming the white muscles (fast twitch). This study aims at assessing how the roles of ACE gene exhaust the possibilities of the athlete's cardiovascular ability. Moreover, this study used the observational method with the prospective study approach to reveal a case in point of the correlation between one factor and the effect it causes. The findings indicated signifi-cant differences among the groups of II, ID, and DD variations of ACE gene genotype. The genotype II exposed an enhanced re-sponse to the cardiovascular endurance training compared to the genotype of DD and ID by the significant value. Also, there was a robust correlation of the variation of the angiotensin-converting enzyme of insertion/deletion and the cardiovascular duration per-formance of the athlete.
