Cftr deficiency sensitizes cells to HOCl mediated toxicity. The levels of both extracellular and intracellular GSH (A) and SCN (B) were examined in cells either sufficient (C38) or deficient (IB3) in CFTR grown on an air liquid interface. In addition, both the CFTR sufficient and deficient cells were treated HOCl (C) to examine cell sensitivity. Data presented as mean ± SEM, *p ≤ 0.05, **p ≤ 0.01, ***p ≤ 0.001 compared between CFTR (+) and CFTR (-)
