    The intron free mRNA encoding for the CF gene is 6129bases long and the most common mutation in the CF gene (~70% of the cases) has a 3 base deletion within the 6129 bases. (This mutation leads to a loss of Phenylalanine 508) The other 30% of mutations occur at different sites and lead to different amino acids mutations. ...
