CFTR (Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Regulator) is an integral membrane protein shown to be involved in the transport of chloride ions. It is found on the surface of the epithelial cells lining the lungs and other organs. CFTR defects are the cause of cystic fibrosis. 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. ~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.
Catalog #C9040-02
ApplicationsSuitable for use in Western Blot, Immunoprecipitation and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
Recommended DilutionsWestern Blot: 0.5-2ug/ml detects CFTR from 2050ug of human T84 colon carcinoma epithelial RIPA cell lysates. 0.5-2ug/ml of a previous lot detected CFTR from CFTR-transfected BHK2. Note: Do not boil the lysate. Instead incubate at 37°C for 30 minutes. CFTR can run as a diffuse protein on SDS-PAGE. T84 cell lysate was resolved by electrophoresis, transferred to nitrocellulose and probed with C9040-02 (0.5ug/ml). Proteins were visualized using an IgG (HRP) goat anti-mouse secondary antibody and a chemiluminescence detection system.
Immunohistochemistry: Immunostains CFTR in human pancreatic tissue sections
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
