CFTR Rabbit anti-Human, Polyclonal, Invitrogen
Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: Invitrogen PA1935
PA1-935 detects cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance factor (CFTR) from cells overexpressing the human protein. PA1-935 has been successfully used in immunocytochemistry procedures. Immunocytochemical staining of HEK293 cells overexpressing human CFTR with this antibody results in staining primarily of the plasma membrane. PA1-935 immunizing peptide corresponds to amino acid residues 103-117 from human CFTR protein. This sequence is completely conserved between human, rabbit, and monkey and there is a one amino acid substitution in rat, bovine, and sheep.Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a common lethal genetic disease caused by mutations of the gene coding for the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance factor, a cAMP regulated chloride channel. Approximately 70% of all CF cases share the deletion of a phenylalanine at position 508 (delta F508) which results in abnormal chloride transport. Since the CF mutation is lethal, most often by lung and liver disease, it raises the question of why this genetic disease remains as common as it is. One possible explanation is that Salmonella typhi has been shown to use CFTR to enter intestinal epithelial cells and that delta F508 heterozygote and homozygote mice showed 86% and 100% reductions in S. typhi intestinal submucosal uptake.
