BACKGROUND and AIMS: Cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) is an adenosine 3',5'-cyclic monophosphate-dependent chloride channel that is defective in cystic fibrosis. The aims of this study were to determine if defective apical chloride secretion in the intestine of patients with cystic fibrosis alters the intracellular electrolyte milieu and to examine the geographical localization of CFTR in the normal intestine. METHODS: The content of intracellular elements was assess...Expand abstract
