Antibodies for CFTR studies

J Cyst Fibros. 2004 Aug;3 Suppl 2:69-72. doi: 10.1016/j.jcf.2004.05.016.

Abstract

For most expression studies focusing on the Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Conductance Regulator (CFTR) protein, sensitive and specific antibodies (Abs) are critically needed. Several Abs have been produced commercially or by research laboratories for CFTR detection in both cell lines with heterologous or endogenous expression and native cells/tissues. Here, we review the applicability of most Abs currently in use in CF research for the biochemical and/or immunocytochemical detection of CFTR.
