Cystic Fibrosis Human Bronchial Epithelial Cell Line (CF/T43)

An airway epithelial cell line (CF/T43) was developed by infecting cultured airway epithelial cells from patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) with the pZIPneoSV(X)1/SV40T retrovirus and selecting for G418 resistance and ion transport properties.


  • Display distinctive chloride secretory phenotypes
  • Useful for testing candidate CF genes and evaluating molecular mechanisms responsible for the CF phenotype

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a common generalized disorder of exocrine gland function which impairs clearance of secretions in a variety of organs. It is characterized by the triad of chronic bronchopulmonary disease (with recurrent respiratory infections), pancreatic insufficiency (which leads to malabsorption and growth retardation) and elevated sweat electrolytes.
