Background: LRRC32/GARP
Leucine-rich repeat protein 32 (LRRC32), also known as GARP (glycoprotein A repetitions predominant), is an 80 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein (1). Mature human LRRC32 consists of a 608 amino acid (aa) extracellular domain (ECD) that contains 22 leucine‑rich repeats, a 21 aa transmembrane segment, and a 14 aa cytoplasmic domain (2, 3). Within the ECD, human LRRC32 shares approximately 80% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat LRRC32. LRRC32 is widely expressed during embryogenesis and on adult platelets (4, 5). Human LRRC32 is identified as a lineage specific key receptor for human T cells. It is selectively expressed on activated FOXP3+ regulatory T cells (Treg) (6-10). LRRC32 expression promotes the acquisition of a Treg phenotype including reduced cellular proliferation, reduced cytokine secretion, and the capacity to suppress the proliferation of naïve T cells (6-8). LRRC32 binds directly to the TGF-beta latency associated peptide (LAP) and tethers latent TGF-beta on the surface of activated Treg cells (9, 10). The presentation of TGF-beta on Tregs contributes to their ability to suppress naïve T cell proliferation (11).
