CF

The two-character ISO 3166 country code for CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC.

Cf

1. On a bond transaction table, an abbreviation indicating that a bond has matured, but is still trading.

2. ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code for the Central African Republic. This is the code used in international transactions to and from Central African bank accounts.

3. ISO 3166-2 geocode for the Central African Republic. This is used as an international standard for shipping to the Central African Republic. The capital and each prefecture have their own codes with the prefix "CF." For example, the code for the Prefecture of Ouaka is ISO 3166-2:CF-UK.

Ile1027Thr substitution in the CFTR gene is unknown and it has been reported variably as a polymorphism or a deleterious mutation.
Our findings suggest that CFTR is a multi-tasker protein that is not only involved in chloride transport but also in regulating cell death and inflammation by keeping in check the rampant and dangerous accumulation of ceramide," said principal investigator Neeraj Vij, Ph.
Although the sample size was small, this report suggests that exon copy number variants of CFTR is not a major mutational mechanism giving rise to CF in black and coloured southern African CF patients.
