|Precautions||CFTR Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Involved in the transport of chloride ions. May regulate bicarbonate secretion and salvage in epithelial cells by regulating the SLC4A7 transporter. Can inhibit the chloride channel activity of ANO1. Plays a role in the chloride and bicarbonate homeostasis during sperm epididymal maturation and capacitation.|
|Cellular Location||Early endosome membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Cell membrane. Note=In the oviduct and bronchus, detected on the apical side of epithelial cells, but not associated with cilia.|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in the respiratory airway, including bronchial epithelium, and in the female reproductive tract, including oviduct (at protein level)|

The cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) protein is a member of the ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter superfamily, and a member of the MRP subfamily that is involved in multi-drug resistance (1,2). CFTR functions as a chloride channel and controls the regulation of other transport pathways (3). Mutations in this gene are associated with the autosomal recessive disorder cystic fibrosis, the most common, fatal, inherited disease of caucasian populations (1).
