DNA from cystic fibrosis patients with and without chronic infections points to unsuspected mutation Comparing the DNA from patients at the best and worst extremes of a health condition can reveal genes for resistance and susceptibility. This approach discovered rare variations in the DCTN4 gene among cystic fibrosis patients most prone to early, chronic airway infections. The DCTN4 gene codes for dynactin 4. This protein is a component of a molecular motor that moves trouble-making...
