CYSTIC FIBROSIS MUTATION DETECTION

  • Test Usage:
    Cystic fibrosis (CF), also known as mucoviscidosis, is a genetic disorder that affects mostly the lungs but also the pancreas, liver, kidneys, and intestine. CF is caused by a mutation in the gene cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR). This test detects the most common mutation, ΔF508 which is a deletion of three nucleotides that results in a loss of the amino acid phenylalanine (F) at the 508th position on the protein. This mutation accounts for two-thirds of CF cases worldwide and 90% of cases in the United States.
