Cystic fibrosis: gene to product
Graphic taken (in part) from Human Genetics: Concepts and Applications by Ricki Lewis (1994), Wm. C. Brown
The most frequently occurring mutation, delta-F508, is a single amino acid deletion in exon 10 which codes for a portion of the first nucleotide binding function (NBF-1) domain of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulation protein. Although the mutant protein is produced since it is only missing one amino acid, it seems to be identified as non-functional and does not undergo the usual final modifications within the endoplasmic reticulum. Instead, the mutant protein is degraded. A list of other CF mutations is available

At the MRC Human Genetics Unit Edinburgh. My research was involved with developing and utilising a variety of assays to study the efficacy of gene delivery and expression of our Gene Therapy reagents. We used quantitative PCR in situ hybridisation to study gene delivery to the lungs; and epitope tagged versions of CFTR to study protein synthesis and localisation. The aim is to have available an array of assays which enable a thorough analysis of the efficiency of gene therapy reagents in all experimental systems, including potential clinical trials.

KidsHealth Kids Kids' Health Problems
Every day when she wakes up, Lisa begins to deal with a condition she's known all her life - cystic fibrosis (say: sis -tik fi- bro -sus). While still in her pajamas, her parents clap her back and chest for at least 20 minutes to help clear her lungs of the thick mucus that sometimes makes it difficult for her to breathe. At school, Lisa coughs a lot, so she keeps a box of tissues on her desk just in case she coughs up mucus and needs to spit it out. In gym class, she participates in sports but often gets tired easily. At lunchtime, Lisa takes pills to help her digest her food and get all the vitamins she needs, which helps her keep up her strength to deal with cystic fibrosis. What Is CF?
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a disease that causes the body to make thick, sticky mucus (say: myoo -kus). This causes problems in two major areas: the lungs and the digestive system. Healthy lungs produce mucus, which protects the airways and makes it easier to breathe. But for a person with CF, the mucus is thick and sticky and can clog up the lungs. This creates a place where bacteria can easily grow - and bacteria cause infections. And it's not only the lungs that are affected in a person who has cystic fibrosis. Mucus-producing cells line the digestive tract, including the stomach, intestines, liver, and pancreas. The pancreas produces enzymes that help digest food and hormones that help absorb sugar. When thick mucus in the pancreas clogs up the narrow passageways, it can make it difficult for people to digest food and get all the vitamins and nutrients they need.

52. Cystic Fibrosis
cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disorder that currently affects more than 30000 American children and young adults.
http://kidshealth.org/parent/medical/lungs/cf.html

KidsHealth
Parents Medical Problems
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disorder that particularly affects the lungs and digestive system and makes a child more vulnerable to repeated lung infections. Now, thanks to high-tech medical advances in drug therapy and genetics, children born with CF can look forward to longer and more comfortable lives. In the last 10 years, research into all aspects of CF has helped doctors to understand the illness better and to develop new therapies. In the future, ongoing research may help find a cure. What Is Cystic Fibrosis?
Currently affecting more than 30,000 children and young adults in the United States, cystic fibrosis makes children sick by disrupting the normal function of epithelial cells - cells that make up the sweat glands in the skin and that also line passageways inside the lungs, liver, pancreas, and digestive and reproductive systems. In CF, the inherited CF gene directs the body's epithelial cells to produce a defective form of a protein called CFTR (or Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Conductance Regulator) found in cells that line the lungs, digestive tract, sweat glands, and genitourinary system. When the CFTR protein is defective, epithelial cells can't regulate the way chloride (part of the salt called sodium chloride) passes across cell membranes. This disrupts the essential balance of salt and water that is needed to maintain a normal thin coating of fluid and mucus inside the lungs, pancreas, and passageways in other organs. The mucus becomes thick, sticky, and hard to move.

SciClone Presents Preclinical Data Demonstrating SCV-07's Activity in Human Papillomavirus and Lassa Fever Models
Most carriers contracted the hepatitis C virus (HCV) before blood screening for the virus began in 1990. Once infected, 20 years can pass before life-threatening complications arise.
Unfortunately, nearly half of HCV patients fail current therapy. SciClone is evaluating ZADAXIN in two phase 3 trials, aiming to meet the growing need for a cure for HCV.

What is Cystic Fibrosis
Every year, 1,000 children with cystic fibrosis (CF) are born in the United States. One in 3,000 Caucasian babies have the disorder, making CF one of the most common lethal genetic diseases in Caucasians. Overall, there are 30,000 Americans with CF, and an estimated 8 million people carry one copy of the defective gene that causes the disease. These carriers do not have symptoms of CF, because a person must inherit two defective gene copies-one from each parent-to develop the disease. However, each child of two CF carriers has a one in four chance of being born with CF. Genetic testing is now available to identify couples at risk for having children with CF.
Symptoms of Cystic Fibrosis
CF affects tissues that produce mucus secretions, such as the airway, the gastrointestinal tract, the ducts of the pancreas, the bile ducts of the liver and the male urogenital tract. Normal mucus forms a gel-like barrier that plays an important role in protecting the cells lining the inside surfaces of these tissues. In the lung, mucus also transports dust and other particles out of the airway and helps to prevent infection. CF alters the chemical properties of mucus; instead of protecting tissues from harm, the abnormal mucus obstructs the ducts and airways, causing tissue damage.
