ECFS Clinical Meeting Liverpool TMEM16A potentiator Objectives: TMEM16A (ANO1) is a Ca2+-activated, alternative chloride channel expressed in the human airway epithelium. A potentiator of TMEM16A is predicted to enhance the secretion of chloride and thereby increase mucus hydration and clearance in the CF lung. Our aim is to discover and test the efficacy of novel […]
