Protein function

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.

Protein 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. Isoform Mdel is widely expressed in melanocytes, melanoma cell lines and tissues, but almost undetectable in non-melanoma cell lines.

Involvement in disease

Waardenburg syndrome 2A (WS2A) [MIM:193510]: WS2 is a genetically heterogeneous, autosomal dominant disorder characterized by sensorineural deafness, pigmentary disturbances, and absence of dystopia canthorum. The frequency of deafness is higher in WS2 than in WS1. . Note: The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.; Waardenburg syndrome 2, with ocular albinism, autosomal recessive (WS2-OA) [MIM:103470]: A disorder characterized by the association of features typical of Waardenburg syndrome type 2 with ocular albinism. Patients manifest reduced visual acuity, albinotic fundus, deafness, hypomelanosis. . Note: The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.; Tietz syndrome (TIETZS) [MIM:103500]: Autosomal dominant disorder characterized by generalized hypopigmentation and profound, congenital, bilateral deafness. Penetrance is complete. . Note: The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.; Melanoma, cutaneous malignant 8 (CMM8) [MIM:614456]: A malignant neoplasm of melanocytes, arising de novo or from a pre-existing benign nevus, which occurs most often in the skin but also may involve other sites. . Note: Disease susceptibility is associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry.

Protein sequence and domain

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

Protein post-translational modifications

Phosphorylation at Ser-405 significantly enhances the ability to bind the tyrosinase promoter. Phosphorylated at Ser-180 and Ser-516 following KIT signaling, trigerring a short live activation: Phosphorylation at Ser-180 and Ser-516 by MAPK and RPS6KA1, respectively, activate the transcription factor activity but also promote ubiquitination and subsequent degradation by the proteasome. / Ubiquitinated following phosphorylation at Ser-180, leading to subsequent degradation by the proteasome. Deubiquitinated by USP13, preventing its degradation.
