Mutation Details for c.715G>A

cDNA Name c.715G>A 
Protein Name p.Gly239Arg 
Exon or Intron exon 6 
Legacy Exon or Intron exon 6a 
Legacy Name G239R 
Other Details This missense mutation in exon 6a of the CFTR gene was detected by heteroduplex-MDE analysis of DNA amplified by PCR with exon 6a specific primers (6ai-5, 5'-TTAGTGTGCTCAGAACCACG-3' and 6ai-3. 5'-CTATGCATAGAGCAGTCCTG-3'). Direct sequencing showed G to A transition at the nucleotidew position 847, which changes glycine to arginine at the amino acid position 239. The G239R allele was found once among 192 CF chromosomes screened for mutations in exon 6a. Mutation on the other chromosome of the pancreatic sufficient (PS) patient is unknown.
