Researchers at the Chemistry and Biology of Metals laboratory demonstrate for the first time the contribution of GTP in the degradation of CFTR-delF508, a misfolded form of CFTR transmembrane protein whose dysfunction is responsible for cystic fibrosis. These researchers have biochemically characterize this new degradation pathway and the protein potentially involved.
