Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a multisystem disease associated with mutations in the gene that encodes the CF transmembrane conductance regulatory (CFTR) protein. The majority of wild-type CFTR and virtually all mutant ΔF508 CFTR are degraded before reaching the cell surface. Certain agents and conditions that increase expression and maturation of CFTR enable the(More)
S-nitrosothiols (SNOs) are endogenous signaling molecules with a broad spectrum of beneficial airway effects. SNOs are normally present in the airway, but levels tend to be low in cystic fibrosis (CF) patients. We and others have demonstrated that S-nitrosoglutathione (GSNO) increases the expression, maturation, and function of wild-type and mutant F508del(More)
