Cystic fibrosis genetic testing

Cystic fibrosis genetic testing: Cystic fibrosis genetic testing examines the CFTR (cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance) gene for mutations known to increase the risk for cystic fibrosis due to a defect in chloride transport across cell membranes. The mutations identified thus far are autosomal recessive, so a person that has cystic fibrosis has two copies of the mutated gene.
