The inability of defensin to function in high-salt environments is at least partly responsible for the pathology of this disease. Imagine that you are the director of a biotech company that specializes in manufacturing human proteins by producing them in yeast. Based on what you know about protein structure and function in general, and defensin in particular, propose an experimental strategy for your company to develop a new product to treat cystic fibrosis patients.
