HideShow resource information
What was a mutation of the CFTR lead to?
A mutation changes the sequence of bases
1 of 11
What would this sequence of bases lead to?
stop code, insertion and deletion
2 of 11
Therefore, what would not occur?
transcription and translation
3 of 11
Where are the CFTR proteins?
in the cell surface membrane of mucus producing cells
4 of 11
What would the change in primary structure lead to?
Change in the sequence of amino acids, bonding will be different
5 of 11
What kind of protein is a CFTR molecule?
Channel protein
6 of 11
What wouldnt be able to occur?
no chloride ions will be able to enter of leave the CFTR protein
7 of 11
What happens when the CFTR molecule is absent or not working?
less chloride ions in mucus,
8 of 11
Therefore, what happens to the mucus?
stickier
