Antibiotic accumulation and membrane trafficking in cystic fibrosis cells.


Cystic fibrosis (CF) results from mutations in the gene encoding the CF transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) which is a regulated chloride channel. The deltaF508 mutation prevents the post-translational glycosylation and membrane insertion of the protein. Severe disease follows, with the formation of a viscous mucus and subsequent chronic bacterial… (More)
