Microphthalmia-associated transcription factor

Transcription factor that regulates the expression of genes with essential roles in cell differentiation, proliferation and survival. Binds to symmetrical DNA sequences (E-boxes) (5'-CACGTG-3') found in the promoters of target genes, such as BCL2 and tyrosinase (TYR). Plays an important role in melanocyte development by regulating the expression of tyrosinase (TYR) and tyrosinase-related protein 1 (TYRP1). Plays a critical role in the differentiation of various cell types, such as neural crest-derived melanocytes, mast cells, osteoclasts and optic cup-derived retinal pigment epithelium (By similarity).

MITF: a transcription factor that contains both basic helix-loop-helix and leucine zipper structural features. Plays a critical role in the differentiation of various cell types including neural crest- derived melanocytes, mast cells, osteoclasts and optic cup-derived retinal pigment epithelium. Two isoforms are known: the M-isoform is expressed exclusively in melanocytes, while the A-isoform has
a much broader range of expression. Mutations in MITF can lead to Waardenburg syndrome. Ten alternatively spliced isoforms have been described.

Protein type: DNA-binding; Oncoprotein; Transcription factor

Cellular Component: nucleus; protein complex

Molecular Function: chromatin binding; DNA binding; RNA polymerase II transcription factor activity, enhancer binding; transcription factor activity

Biological Process: bone remodeling; camera-type eye development; cell differentiation; cell fate commitment; melanocyte differentiation; negative regulation of apoptosis; negative regulation of transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter; osteoclast differentiation; pigmentation; positive regulation of transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter; positive regulation of transcription, DNA-dependent; protein complex assembly; regulation of cell proliferation; regulation of gene expression; regulation of osteoclast differentiation; regulation of transcription, DNA-dependent; Wnt receptor signaling pathway
