Image: The cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) channel protein controls the flow of H2O and Cl- ions into and out of lung cells. When CFTR is working correctly (Panel 1), these ions flow in and out. However, when CFTR is malfunctioning (as in Panel 2), these ions cannot flow out of the cell due to channel blockage, leading to the buildup of thick mucus in the lungs characteristic of cystic fibrosis (Photo courtesy of Wikimedia (user Lbudd14)).

New Prenatal Cystic Fibrosis Tests Improve CFTR Screening Options
