The cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) is a 1480 amino acid membrane bound glycoprotein with
a molecular mass of 170,000. It is a member of the ATP binding cassette (ABC)superfamily of proteins. The protein is
comprised of two, six span membrane bound regions each connected to a nuclear binding factor which binds ATP.
Between these two units is an R-domain which is comprised of many charged amino acids. The R-domain is a unique
feature of CFTR within the ABC superfamily.
