The genetic disease cystic fibrosis (CF) is caused by mutations of the CF gene and generates defective Cl- transport across the affected epithelium. Recent progress have been made to understand CFTR activity and regulation in epithelia and its role in the muco-ciliary clearance of airway. This revue-overviews the mechanisms of transepithelial ion transport, the role of CFTR in that process and the consequences for CF of CFTR mutations.
