Tested Applications & Species
Application Species ICC/IFHuman
The Life Science industry has been in the grips of a reproducibility crisis for a number of years. Abcam is leading the way in addressing the problem with our range of recombinant monoclonal antibodies and knockout edited cell lines for gold-standard validation.
One factor contributing to the crisis is the use of antibodies that are not suitable. This can lead to misleading results and the use of incorrect data informing project assumptions and direction. To help address this challenge, we have introduced an application and species grid on our primary antibody datasheets to make it easy to simplify identification of the right antibody for your needs.

Primary antibody notesCystic Fibrosis (CF) is a common lethal genetic disease caused by mutations of the gene coding for the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance factor, a cAMP regulated chloride channel. Approximately 70% of all CF cases share the deletion of a phenylalanine at position 508 (delta F508) which results in abnormal chloride transport. Since the CF mutation is lethal, most often by lung and liver disease, it raises the question of why this genetic disease remains as common as it is. One possible explanation is that Salmonella typhi has been shown to use CFTR to enter intestinal epithelial cells and that delta F508 heterozygote and homozygote mice showed 86% and 100% reductions in S. typhi intestinal submucosal uptake.

Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.
FunctionInvolved in the transport of chloride ions. May regulate bicarbonate secretion and salvage in epithelial cells by regulating the SLC4A7 transporter.
Tissue specificityFound on the surface of the epithelial cells that line the lungs and other organs.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in CFTR are the cause of cystic fibrosis (CF) [MIM:219700]; also known as mucoviscidosis. CF is the most common genetic disease in the Caucasian population, with a prevalence of about 1 in 2'000 live births. Inheritance is autosomal recessive. CF is a common generalized disorder of exocrine gland function which impairs clearance of secretions in a variety of organs. It is characterized by the triad of chronic bronchopulmonary disease (with recurrent respiratory infections), pancreatic insufficiency (which leads to malabsorption and growth retardation) and elevated sweat electrolytes.
Defects in CFTR are the cause of congenital bilateral absence of the vas deferens (CBAVD) [MIM:277180]. CBAVD is an important cause of sterility in men and could represent an incomplete form of cystic fibrosis, as the majority of men suffering from cystic fibrosis lack the vas deferens.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the ABC transporter superfamily. ABCC family. CFTR transporter (TC 3.A.1.202) subfamily.
Contains 2 ABC transmembrane type-1 domains.
Contains 2 ABC transporter domains.
DomainThe PDZ-binding motif mediates interactions with GOPC and with the SLC4A7, SLC9A3R1/EBP50 complex.
modificationsPhosphorylated; activates the channel. It is not clear whether PKC phosphorylation itself activates the channel or permits activation by phosphorylation at PKA sites.
Ubiquitinated, leading to its degradation in the lysosome. Deubiquitination by USP10 in early endosomes, enhances its endocytic recycling.
Cellular localizationEarly endosome membrane.
