CFTR in Human Placenta. CFTR was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human placenta using Mouse Anti-Human CFTR R Domain Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB1660) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Before incubation with the primary antibody tissue was subjected to heat-induced epitope retrieval using Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (Catalog # CTS013). Tissue was stained using the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific labeling was localized to the plasma membrane and cytoplasm of decidual cells. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Paraffin-embedded Tissue Sections.

Cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) is a multi-pass transmembrane protein that functions as a chloride channel. CFTR belongs to the ATP-binding cassette (ABC) superfamily. Mutations in CFTR cause the pulmonary disease, cystic fibrosis (CF). Specifically, deletion of phenyalanine at position 508 (DeltaF508-CFTR) results in a folding defect which impairs chloride channel function. The mechanism by which channel dysfunction relates to disease symptoms is a focus of intense research. CFTR dysfunction results in disruption of ion transport and subsequent blockage of airways by secreted mucus. CFTR may also play a role in the skeletal muscle atrophy and dysfunction that characterizes CF. In addition, CFTR-mediated chloride secretion underlies fluid accumulation and cyst growth in autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD).
