    Physical exercise with increased ventilation leads to a considerable rise in water loss from the airways. The mechanisms underlying the regulation of transepithelial fluid transport necessary to compensate for these losses are unknown but may include changes in luminal ion channel conductance....

    We address the question of whether human airway epithelia have increased Na+ permeability in cystic fibrosis (CF) disease. CF is the most common lethal genetic disease among Caucasians. It is known that loss-of-function mutations in the CFTR gene, encoding an anion channel, cause reduced Cl-...

    The article presents some papers related to cystic fibrosis (CF). Much of the morbidity and mortality seen in CF is related to chronic infection of the respiratory tract with Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Pa). Adherence of Pa is increased to CF as compared with non-CF human nasal epithelium and is...

    Nitric oxide (NO) has been reported to activate Cl– secretion via the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) and inhibit epithelial Na+ absorption mediated by amiloride-sensitive epithelial Na+ channels (ENaC). These ion transport systems are defective in cystic...

    Background: Treatments designed to correct cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) defects must first be evaluated in preclinical experiments in the mouse model of cystic fibrosis (CF). Mice nasal mucosa mimics the bioelectric defect seen in humans. The use of nasal potential...
