  • Estimates of the level of transcripts from the cystic fibrosis (CF) transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene required to develop a CF phenotype range from 4-20% of normal. Due to the importance of obtaining reliable data on this issue for therapeutic strategies, we developed a novel polymerase chain reaction-based method to quantify CFTR transcripts and applied it to the analysis of nasal epithelium RNA of five patients with CF and the 3272-26A>G/F508del genotype. We calculated that 8.2… CONTINUE READING
