Summary
Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is caused by mutations in the CF Transmembrane conductance Regulator (CFTR), the only ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter functioning as a channel. Unique to CFTR is a regulatory domain which includes a highly conformationally dynamic region—the regulatory extension (RE). The first nucleotide-binding domain of CFTR contains another dynamic region—regulatory insertion (RI). Removal of RI rescues the trafficking defect of CFTR with F508del, the most common CF-causing mutation. Here we aimed to assess the impact of RE removal (with/without RI or genetic revertants) on F508del-CFTR trafficking and how CFTR modulator drugs VX-809/lumacaftor and VX-770/ivacaftor rescue these variants. We generated cell lines expressing ΔRE and ΔRI CFTR (with/without genetic revertants) and assessed CFTR expression, stability, plasma membrane levels, and channel activity. Our data demonstrated that ΔRI significantly enhanced rescue of F508del-CFTR by VX-809. While the presence of the RI seems to be precluding full rescue of F508del-CFTR processing by VX-809, this region appears essential to rescue its function by VX-770, suggesting some contradictory role in rescue of F508del-CFTR by these two modulators. This negative impact of RI removal on VX-770-stimulated currents on F508del-CFTR can be compensated by deletion of the RE which also leads to the stabilization of this mutant. Despite both regions being conformationally dynamic, RI precludes F508del-CFTR processing while RE affects mostly its stability and channel opening.\n\n
