Abstract

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is the most common severe autosomal recessive disorder of the Caucasian population, with an estimated birth incidence of 1 in 2,500. Since the identification of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene and the most common mutation (AF508) in 1989 (1,2,3), over 150 additional mutations have been characterised (4). We have recently described the molecular characterisation of 99.5% (365/367) of CF chomosomes in Wales (5). Here we report in detail the identification a novel mutation in the translation initiation codon of the CFTR gene, in a CF chromosome of Italian origin. We also describe the subsequent screening for this mutation in an Italian population.
