Target

  • Function

    Transcription factor for tyrosinase and tyrosinase-related protein 1. Binds to a symmetrical DNA sequence (E-boxes) (5'-CACGTG-3') found in the tyrosinase promoter. Plays a critical role in the differentiation of various cell types as neural crest-derived melanocytes, mast cells, osteoclasts and optic cup-derived retinal pigment epithelium.
  • Tissue specificity

    Isoform M is exclusively expressed in melanocytes and melanoma cells. Isoform A and isoform H are widely expressed in many cell types including melanocytes and retinal pigment epithelium (RPE). Isoform C is expressed in many cell types including RPE but not in melanocyte-lineage cells.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects in MITF are the cause of Waardenburg syndrome type 2A (WS2A) [MIM:193510]. It is a dominant inherited disorder characterized by sensorineural hearing loss and patches of depigmentation. The features show variable expression and penetrance.
    Defects in MITF are a cause of Waardenburg syndrome type 2 with ocular albinism (WS2-OA) [MIM:103470]. It is an ocular albinism with sensorineural deafness.
    Defects in MITF are the cause of Tietz syndrome (TIETZS) [MIM:103500]. It is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by generalized hypopigmentation and profound, congenital, bilateral deafness. Penetrance is complete.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the MiT/TFE family.
    Contains 1 basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) domain.
  • Post-translational
    modifications

    Phosphorylation at Ser-405 significantly enhances the ability to bind the tyrosinase promoter.
  • Cellular localization

    Nucleus.

Images

  • Overlay histogram showing MALME-3M cells stained with ab201675 (red line). The cells were fixed with 4% formaldehyde (10 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Triton X-100 for 15 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab201675, 1/500 dilution) for 30 min at 22°C.

    Isotype control antibody (black line) was Mouse IgG1 (monoclonal) Alexa Fluor® 488 used at the same concentration and conditions as the primary antibody. Unlabelled sample (blue line) was also used as a control.

    Acquisition of >5,000 events were collected using a 50mW Blue laser (488nm) and 530/30 bandpass filter.

    This antibody gave a positive signal in MALME-3M cells fixed with 80% methanol (5 min)/permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Triton X-100 for 15 min used under the same conditions.
