They are related: Dear Jane, The CFTR gene is the gene associated with Cystic Fibrosis (CF). As we each inherit two copies of most all of our genes (one copy from each parent), we each carry two copies of the CFTR gene as well. If someone has two mutations in this gene, then they would be considered affected and will have CF. If someone only has one mutation in this gene, then they would be considered a carrier.
