CFTR stands for cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator. It is a gene which plays an important role in the communication between cells which line the surfaces of the human body. It is located on the seventh human chromosome. In the past, mutations of this gene were associated with the development of cystic fibrosis, a life-threatening genetic disorder that affects the lungs, digestive system and other organs.
