Frequency distribution of CFTR gene variants differ between countries and ethnic groups. The article discusses the spectrum of detected mutations in Russian CF patients. The results were obtained in a representative sample. A comprehensive analysis of mutant alleles in CFTR gene allowed us to expand the spectrum of pathogenic mutations in cystic fibrosis patients.
