TGF-beta downregulation of distinct chloride channels in cystic fibrosis-affected epithelia

Academic Article


  • Rationale: The cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) and Calcium-activated Chloride Conductance (CaCC) each play critical roles in maintaining normal hydration of epithelial surfaces including the airways and colon. TGFbeta is a genetic modifier of cystic fibrosis (CF), but how it influences the CF phenotype is not understood.
