The Cystic Fibrosis Gene and CFTR Protein

The identification of the causative gene for CF in 1989 represented one of the great triumphs of molecular genetic research up to that time. With the gene's identification having preceded the official start of the Human Genome Project by one year, the search for the CF gene proceeded without the benefits of the fully mapped genome that we have today. Hence, enzyme a protein that controls a reaction in a cell in vitro "in glass"; in lab apparatus, rather than within a living organism vector carrier
