Microphthalmia-associated transcription factor

Microphthalmia-Associated Transcription Factor, MITF
This transcription factor serves at a critical point between extracellular signaling and downstream targets in cell specification in early eye and neural crest development. Mutant alleles have been identified that generate distinct phenotypes. Some of these alleles are being used to model the human diseases Waardenburg syndrome IIa and Tietz syndrome.

Top mentioned proteins: tyrosinase, CAN, V1a, TRPC1, ERK

Kang et al., Suwŏn, South Korea. In J Invest Dermatol, Jan 2016
It was found that sFRP2 stimulates melanogenesis through microphthalmia-associated transcription factor and/or tyrosinase upregulation via β-catenin signaling.

Spitz nevus arising in the eyelid of a teenager.
Yoon et al., Philadelphia, United States. In Surv Ophthalmol, Nov 2015
HMB-45, MART-1, and microphthalmia-associated transcription factor were all positive and established the melanocytic nature of the benign tumor.
Update in genetic susceptibility in melanoma.
Puig et al., Barcelona, Spain. In Ann Transl Med, Sep 2015
Furthermore variants in melanocortin 1 receptor (MC1R) and microphthalmia-associated transcription factor (MITF) give a moderately increased risk to develop melanoma.

Nameki et al., Tokyo, Japan. In Int J Clin Exp Pathol, 2014
Upon immunohistochemical examination, melanocytes displayed reactivity for 3 out of 4 melanocytic markers; immunopositivity for S-100 protein, Melan-A, and MITF and immunonegativity for HMB-45 was observed.
RAB7 controls melanoma progression by exploiting a lineage-specific wiring of the endolysosomal pathway.
Soengas et al., Madrid, Spain. In Cancer Cell, 2014
Importantly, RAB7 levels and function were independent of MITF, the best-characterized melanocyte lineage-specific transcription factor.
A melanocyte lineage program confers resistance to MAP kinase pathway inhibition.
Garraway et al., Cambridge, United States. In Nature, 2014
Expression of transcription factors activated downstream of MAP kinase and cAMP pathways also conferred resistance, including c-FOS, NR4A1, NR4A2 and MITF.
A polymorphism in IRF4 affects human pigmentation through a tyrosinase-dependent MITF/TFAP2A pathway.
Steingrimsson et al., Iceland. In Cell, 2013
The allele associated with this pigmentation phenotype impairs binding of the TFAP2A transcription factor that, together with the melanocyte master regulator MITF, regulates activity of the enhancer.

Arnheiter et al., Bethesda, United States. In Plos Genet, 2012
in the retinal pigment epithelium(RPE) , PAX6 cooperates with either one (or both) of two related RPE transcription factors, MITF and TFEC, to suppress extracellular signals that in the normal retina induce a signaling cascade promoting retina formation.

Fisher et al., Boston, United States. In Plos Genet, 2011
These studies reveal how a ubiquitous factor (YY1) gains lineage-specific functions by co-regulating gene expression with a lineage-restricted factor (M-MITF)-a general mechanism which may confer tissue-specific gene expression in multiple lineages
