Gene: LRRC8A (leucine rich repeat containing 8 VRAC subunit A) Homo sapiens
Symbol: LRRC8A
Name: leucine rich repeat containing 8 VRAC subunit A
Description: Exhibits identical protein binding activity and volume-sensitive anion channel activity. Contributes to anion channel activity. Involved in anion transmembrane transport; cell volume homeostasis; and response to osmotic stress. Localizes to the cell surface; ion channel complex; and plasma membrane. Implicated in agammaglobulinemia and agammaglobulinemia 5.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: AGM5; FLJ10337; FLJ41617; KIAA1437; leucine rich repeat containing 8; leucine rich repeat containing 8 family member A; leucine rich repeat containing 8 family, member A; leucine-rich repeat containing 8 family member A; leucine-rich repeat-containing protein 8A; LRRC8; SWELL1; swelling protein 1; volume-regulated anion channel subunit LRRC8A
