    BACKGROUND: The mechanism by which pancreas divisum may lead to recurrent episodes of acute pancreatitis in a subset of individuals is unknown. Abnormalities of the cystic fibrosis gene product (CFTR) have been implicated in the genesis of idiopathic chronic pancreatitis. The aim of this study...

    Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a life-shortening disease arising as a consequence of mutations within the CFTR gene. Novel therapeutics for CF are emerging that target CF transmembrane conductance regulator protein (CFTR) defects resulting from specific CFTR variants. Ivacaftor is a drug that...

    Low levels of insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) have been observed in the serum of cystic fibrosis (CF) patients. However, the effects of low serum IGF-1 on the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR), whose defective function is the primary cause of cystic fibrosis, have...

    Background: Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a multisystem disorder characterised by mutations of the CFTR gene, which encodes for an important component in the coordination of electrolyte movement across of epithelial cell membranes. Symptoms are pulmonary disease, pancreatic exocrine insufficiency,...

    CFTR is a dynamically regulated anion channel. Intracellular WNK1-SPAK activation causes CFTR to change permeability and conductance characteristics from a chloride-preferring to bicarbonate-preferring channel through unknown mechanisms. Two severe CFTR mutations (CFTRsev) cause complete loss of...

    Clathrin-mediated endocytosis dynamically regulates cell membrane abundance of CFTR and plays an essential role in CFTR-dependent Cl- conductance in fluid-transporting epithelia. It requires two closely related, but distinct processes: assembly of the clathrin coat and recruitment of cargo...

    OBJECTIVES:The role of pancreas divisum (PD) as a cause of acute recurrent or chronic pancreatitis (AR/CP) is still a matter of debate.METHODS:The aims of this study were to evaluate the frequency of PD diagnosed using magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) in patients with AR/CP of...

    Cystic fibrosis (CF) is caused by mutations in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) Cl- channel. In search of transformational drug therapies for CF patients, small-molecules have been identified that target defects in the expression and function of the commonest CF...

    Aim: Cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) is an anion channel and regulator of proteins¹. Mutations in CFTR cause cystic fibrosis (CF) and a major complication of CF is diabetes². It is largely unknown why these patients develop diabetes but there is increasing...
