Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online With over 1,900 mutations in the genes responsible for cystic fibrosis (CF), separating the harmful alterations form the benign ones has been a long, arduous undertaking for geneticists. In a new report published in Nature Genetics, researchers describe major progress in determining which mutations are which, increasing the number of recognized CF-causing mutations from 22 to 127. The new findings represent 95 percent of the...

The bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa needs iron to establish and maintain a biofilm in the lungs of cystic fibrosis patients, and therapies have been proposed to deprive the bacteria of this necessary element. However, these techniques may not work, according to a new study published in mBio®, the online open-access journal of the American Society for Microbiology, because they only target one of the two types of iron that are available in the lung. Current therapies focus on removing...

University of Toronto researchers are helping demystify an important class of proteins associated with disease, a discovery that could lead to better treatments for cancer, cystic fibrosis and many other conditions. Igor Stagljar, Professor in the Faculty of Medicine's Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomolecular Research, and his team developed the first roadmap for ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter proteins. These proteins are crucial components of every cell, and are also involved...

Cystic Fibrosis
2013-07-19 15:03:45

Cystic fibrosis, also called mucoviscidosis, is an autosomal recessive genetic disorder of the viscous secretions in the body. In turn, it effects the lungs, pancreas, liver, and intestines, as well as all other exocrine glands in the body. The most common genetic mutation that causes CF is a deletion of three nucleotides that results in a loss of phenylalanine, an amino acid at the 508th position on the protein. It should be noted, however, that there are over a thousand other mutations that...
