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.

19 % of the CFTR protein make up the twelve transmembrane domains (M1 - M12). These domains have been shown to be comprised of typical a-helical secondary structure. Many of the residues within these regions form the channel lining residues and have a major role in the regulation of pore function. Six positively charged residues within the transmembrane domains [K95 (M1), R134 (M2), R334 (M6), K335 (M6), R347 (M6) and R1030 (M10] that are well conserved across species. Two of these are associated with mutations causing CF, R334Q/W and R347C/H/L/P.
