A major integral transmembrane protein of the erythrocyte membrane. It is the anion exchanger responsible for electroneutral transporting in CHLORIDE ions in exchange of BICARBONATE ions allowing CO2 uptake and transport from tissues to lungs by the red blood cells. Genetic mutations that result in a loss of the protein function have been associated with type 4 HEREDITARY SPHEROCYTOSIS.
