Cystic fibrosis is a disorder caused by the presence of mutations in both the copies of the gene which is responsible for the protein cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator.It affects the cells that produce mucus, sweat and digestive juices.These fluids are thin and slippery but a defective gene causes these secretions to become thick ,thus blocking the passages in the lungs and pancreas.

 

Mutations in CFTR gene results in Cystic fibrosis. CFTR gene enables instructions for transportation of chloride ions into and out of the cells. Mutations in the CFTR gene disrupts the function of chloride channels that prevents the flow of chloride ions and water across cell membranes. As a result organs produce mucus that is thick and sticky which clogs the airways and ducts resulting isevere chronic attacks.
