The Identification of the CF (Cystic Fibrosis) Gene

Seven months after the report of the cloning of the CF gene by three North American groups, a workshop scheduled before that report was held in sestri Levante, a splendid city on the Ligu­ rian coast. For three days almost 100 scientists from Europe and North America had the opportunity to discuss the perspectives and the new research strategies opened up by the cloning of the gene. The issue of publishing these proceedings was discussed at length among the invited speakers of the workshop and the pre­ vailing opinion was that they would be worthwhile if accompanied by the transcripts of the discussions which followed each pre­ sentation. Thanks to the generous suppport of the Menarini Foun­ dation, represented at the meeting by Dr. Sergio Gorini, and thanks to the reviewing work done by the Chairpersons of each session, by many participants, by Dr. Donata Brugioni, by Mrs. Katherine Loparco and by my collaborators Drs. Marcella Devoto and Luis J. V. Galietta, that idea has generated this book, which should be a helpful tool at least for some years for all those interested in understanding how the CFTR gene works.

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a disease characterized by airway infection, inflammation, remodeling, and obstruction that gradually destroy the lungs. Direct delivery of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene to airway epithelia may offer advantages, as the tissue is accessible for topical delivery of vectors.

08.09.1989 · Approximately 70 percent of the mutations in cystic fibrosis patients correspond to a specific deletion of three base pairs, which results in the loss of a phenylalanine residue at amino acid position 508 of the putative product of the cystic fibrosis gene. Extended haplotype data based on DNA markers closely linked to the putative disease gene

The Cystic Fibrosis Canada website was also reviewed and the most recent patient data registry report was consulted. Main message Atypical CF is a milder form of the CF disorder, which is associated with mutations of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane receptor gene. Instead of having classic symptoms
