Pulmonary disease is the major cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with cystic fibrosis, a disease caused by mutations in the Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane conductance Regulator (CFTR) gene. Heterogeneity in CFTR genotype-phenotype relationships in affected individuals plus the escalation of drug discovery targeting specific mutations highlights the need to develop robust in vitro platforms with which to stratify therapeutic options using relevant tissue. Toward this goal, we adapted a fluorescence plate reader assay of apical CFTR-mediated chloride conductance to enable profiling of a panel of modulators on primary nasal epithelial cultures derived from patients bearing different CFTR mutations...

PURPOSE: As life expectancy in cystic fibrosis (CF) increases, questions regarding its potential impact on cardiovascular health arise. Soluble vascular cell adhesion molecule 1 (sVCAM-1), P-selectin (sP-selectin) are proposed as biomarkers of cardiovascular disease. We aimed to: compare their concentrations in clinically stable CF patients and healthy subjects (HS) and verify whether they independently correlate with CF characteristics. METHODS: Serum sVCAM-1 and sP-selectin levels were measured using ELISA...

Transport of water and electrolytes in airway epithelia involves chloride-selective ion channels, which are controlled either by cytosolic Ca(2+) or by cAMP The contributions of the two pathways to chloride transport differ among vertebrate species. Because rats are becoming more important as animal model for cystic fibrosis, we have examined how Ca(2+)- dependent and cAMP- dependent Cl(-) secretion is organized in the rat tracheal epithelium. We examined the expression of the Ca(2+)-gated Cl(-) channel anoctamin 1 (ANO1), the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) Cl(-) channel, the epithelial Na(+) channel ENaC, and the water channel aquaporin 5 (AQP5) in rat tracheal epithelium...

Mutations in the Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Conductance Regulator (CFTR) gene affect CFTR protein biogenesis or its function as a chloride channel, resulting in dysregulation of epithelial fluid transport in the lung, pancreas and other organs in cystic fibrosis (CF). Development of pharmaceutical strategies to treat CF requires understanding of the mechanisms underlying channel function. However, incomplete 3D structural information on the unique ABC ion channel, CFTR, hinders elucidation of its functional mechanism and correction of cystic fibrosis causing mutants...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Sjögren's syndrome and autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) are disorders with decreased function of salivary, lacrimal glands, and the exocrine pancreas. NOD/ShiLTJ mice and mice transduced with the cytokine BMP6 develop Sjögren's syndrome and chronic pancreatitis and MRL/Mp mice are models of AIP. CFTR is a ductal Cl(-) channel essential for ductal fluid and HCO3(-) secretion. We used these models to ask: is CFTR expression altered in these diseases, does correction of CFTR correct gland function, and most notably, does correcting ductal function correct acinar function...

A three-nucleotide deletion in cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator/ATP-binding cassette transporter C7 (CFTR/ABCC7) resulting in the absence of phenylalanine at 508 leads to mis-fold of the mutated protein and causes cystic fibrosis. We have used a comparable three-nucleotide deletion mutant in another ABCC family member, multidrug resistance-associated protein (MRP1)/ABCC1, to determine whether CRISPR-Cas9-mediated recombination can safely and efficiently knock in three-nucleotide to correct the mutation...

Growth failure in cystic fibrosis (CF) patients has been well-documented and shown to correlate with poorer disease outcomes. This observation is also true in CF animal models, including mouse, pig, rat, and ferret. The etiology underlying growth deficits is unknown, and our previous work demonstrated reduced tubulin acetylation in CF cell models and tissue that is correctable by inhibition of histone deacetylase-6 (HDAC6). Here, we hypothesize that loss of HDAC6 will improve growth phenotype in a CF mouse model...

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most frequent lethal genetic disorder among Caucasians, but is considered to be a very rare disease in Chinese population. Here, we present an 11-year-old Chinese CF patient with disseminated bronchiectasis and salty sweat, for whom exon sequencing followed by multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification analysis of the CFTR gene was applied for mutation screening. A homozygous deletion involving exon 20 of CFTR was observed in the patient's genome. Molecular characterization of the breakpoints indicated that both alleles of this locus had an identical novel complex rearrangement (c...

Chloride channels play an essential role in a variety of physiological functions and in human diseases. Historically, the field of chloride channels has long been neglected owing to the lack of powerful selective pharmacological agents that are needed to overcome the technical challenge of characterizing the molecular identities of these channels. Recently, members of the LRRC8 family have been shown to be essential for generating the volume-regulated anion channel (VRAC) current, a chloride conductance that governs the regulatory volume decrease (RVD) process...

Mutations in the gene encoding the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) anion channel cause cystic fibrosis (CF). The leading cause of death in the CF population is lung disease. Increasing evidence suggests that in utero airway development is CFTR-dependent and that developmental abnormalities may contribute to CF lung disease. However, relatively little is known of postnatal CF airway growth, largely because such studies are limited in people. Therefore, we examined airway growth and lung volume in a porcine model of CF...

Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) has been recognized as a signalling molecule which affects the activity of ion channels and transporters in epithelial cells. The cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) is an epithelial anion channel and a key regulator of electrolyte and fluid homeostasis. In this study, we investigated the regulation of CFTR by H2S. Human CFTR was heterologously expressed in Xenopus oocytes and its activity was electrophysiologically measured by microelectrode recordings. The H2S-forming sulphur salt Na2S as well as the slow-releasing H2S-liberating compound GYY4137 increased transmembrane currents of CFTR-expressing oocytes...

Atherosclerosis is a chronic inflammatory disease of the vascular wall. Dysfunction of cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) has been shown to result in inflammatory responses in cystic fibrosis (CF) patients. However, little is known about the role of CFTR in vascular inflammation and atherogenesis. Our results showed that CFTR was dominantly expressed in macrophages of atherosclerotic plaque and reduced in aorta and aortic sinus from atherosclerotic apolipoprotein E-deficient (apoE-/-) mice...

G551D , a mutation of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene, results in impaired chloride channel function in cystic fibrosis (CF) with multiple end-organ manifestations. The effect of ivacaftor, a CFTR-potentiator, on exercise capacity in cystic fibrosis (CF) is unknown. Twenty G551D-CF patients were recruited to a single-centre, double-blind, placebo-controlled, 28-day crossover study of ivacaftor. Variables measured included percentage change from baseline (%Δ) of VO2max (maximal oxygen consumption, primary outcome) during cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET), relevant other CPET physiological variables, lung function, BMI, sweat chloride, and disease specific health related quality of life (QOL) measures (CFQ-R and Alfred Wellness (AWEscore))...

Ivacaftor is currently used for the treatment of cystic fibrosis as both monotherapy (Kalydeco®) and combination therapy with lumacaftor (Orkambi®). Each therapy targets specific patient populations: Kalydeco treats patients carrying one of nine gating mutations in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator protein (CFTR), while Orkambi treats patients homozygous for the F508del CFTR mutation. In this study, we explored the pharmacological and metabolic effects of precision deuteration chemistry on ivacaftor by synthesizing two novel deuterated ivacaftor analogs, CTP-656 (d9-ivacaftor) and d18-ivacaftor...

Most of 2,000 variants identified in the CFTR (cystic fibrosis transmembrane regulator) gene are rare or private. Their interpretation is hampered by the lack of available data and resources, making patient care and genetic counseling challenging. We developed a patient-based database dedicated to the annotations of rare CFTR variants in the context of their cis- and trans-allelic combinations. Based on almost 30 years' experience of CFTR testing, CFTR-France (https://cftr.iurc.montp.inserm.fr/cftr) currently compiles 16,819 variant records from 4,615 individuals with cystic fibrosis (CF) or CFTR-RD (related disorders), fetuses with ultrasound bowel anomalies, newborns awaiting clinical diagnosis and asymptomatic compound heterozygotes...

BACKGROUND: Sinus hypoplasia is a hallmark characteristic in cystic fibrosis (CF). Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is nearly universal from a young age, impaired sinus development could be secondary to loss of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) or consequences of chronic infection during maturation. The objective of this study was to assess sinus development relative to overall growth in a novel CF animal model. METHODS: Sinus development was evaluated in CFTR(-/-) and CFTR(+/+) rats at 3 stages of development: newborn; 3 weeks; and 16 weeks...

Sphingomyelinase C (SMase) inhibits CFTR chloride channel activity in multiple cell systems, an effect that could exacerbate disease in CF and COPD patients. The mechanism by which sphingomyelin catalysis inhibits CFTR is not known but evidence suggests that it occurs independently of CFTR's regulatory "R" domain. In this study we utilized the Xenopus oocyte expression system to shed light on how CFTR channel activity is reduced by SMase. We found that the pathway leading to inhibition is not membrane delimited and that inhibited CFTR channels remain at the cell membrane, indicative of a novel silencing mechanism...
