Abstract

The F508 deletion in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene was found in 8 out of 30 Turkish cystic fibrosis (CF) chromosomes (27%). Five Turkish delta F508 CF chromosomes were associated with the risk haplotype B in KM19 (2 allele)/XV2c (1 allele). In the Turkish population, cystic fibrosis is predominantly caused by mutations other than the F508 deletion.
