Cystic Fibrosis

Cystic Fibrosis is a type of Nutrient Metabolism ailment caused by the inability of organic Chlorine (Chloride) ions to cross the Epithelial Cells of the body.  It occurs when an individual inherits two abnormal copies of the Gene that codes for the Chloride channel protein, Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Conductance Regulator (CFTR) which is expressed in several organs including the Lungs, the Pancreas, the Biliary System, and the Sweat Glands.  Individuals with one normal and one defective Gene for this Protein are carriers of Cystic Fibrosis (able to pass it on to their offspring) but remain asymptomatic.
