    • Abstract:
      Investigates the ability of the flavonoids genistein, apigenin, kaempferol, and quercetin to activate cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator-mediated Cl currents in human airway epithelium. What stimulation of the currents are caused by; Description of the activation kinetics of CFTR-mediated currents in Calu-3 cells by flavonoids; Findings of the study outlined.
