|Function||Essential component of the volume-regulated anion channel (VRAC, also named VSOAC channel), an anion channel required to maintain a constant cell volume in response to extracellular or intracellular osmotic changes. The VRAC channel conducts iodide better than chloride and may also conduct organic osmolytes like taurine (PubMed:24725410, PubMed:24790029, PubMed:26530471, PubMed:26824658). LRRC8A and LRRC8D are required for the uptake of the drug cisplatin (PubMed:26530471). Required for in vivo channel activity, together with at least one other family member (LRRC8B, LRRC8C, LRRC8D or LRRC8E); channel characteristics depend on the precise subunit composition (PubMed:24790029, PubMed:26824658). Can form functional channels by itself (in vitro) (PubMed:26824658). Involved in B-cell development: required for the pro-B cell to pre-B cell transition (PubMed:14660746). Also required for T-cell development (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Note=The leucine-rich repeat (LRR) domain is on the cytoplasmic side of the cell membrane|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in brain, kidney, ovary, lung, liver, heart, and fetal brain and liver. Found at high levels in bone marrow; lower levels are detected in peripheral blood cells Expressed on T-cells as well as on B-lineage cells|

The leucine rich repeat containing 8 family member A protein (LRRC8A) belongs the LRRC8 family of proteins within the LRR superfamily of proteins, which are involved in diverse biological processes, including cell adhesion, cellular trafficking, and hormone-receptor interactions (1,2). LRRC8A is a four-pass transmembrane protein that plays a role in B cell development. Defects in this gene cause autosomal dominant non-Bruton type agammaglobulinemia, an immunodeficiency disease resulting from defects in B cell maturation (1). LRRC8A has also been shown to be an essential component of the volume-regulated anion channel VRAC (3).
