Associated Diseases (KEGG IDs)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. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:28236341, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8589691}. 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. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:9647758}. The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.; Tietz albinism-deafness syndrome (TADS) [MIM:103500]: An autosomal dominant disorder characterized by generalized hypopigmentation and congenital, bilateral, profound sensorineural deafness. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:10851256}. 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. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:22012259, ECO:0000269|PubMed:22080950}. Disease susceptibility is associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry.; Coloboma, osteopetrosis, microphthalmia, macrocephaly, albinism, and deafness (COMMAD) [MIM:617306]: An autosomal recessive syndrome characterized by severe microphthalmia, profound congenital sensorineural hearing loss, lack of pigment in the hair, skin, and eyes, macrocephaly, facial dysmorphism, and osteopetrosis. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:27889061}. The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. An allelic combination involving at least one dominant-negative mutation, inherited in a recessive manner, represents the underlying molecular mechanism leading to COMMAD syndrome. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:27889061}.; Variations affecting this gene are associated with susceptibility to pheochromocytomas and paragangliomas, rare neural crest-derived tumors with an approximate incidence of 1:300,000/year. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:27680874}.
General Description of Microphthalmia Transcription Factor .
This antibody reacts with a 52-56 kDa protein known as microphthalmia (Mi). This antibody reacts with both melanocytic and non-melanocytic isoforms of Mi. Mi is a basic helix-loop-helix-leucine zipper (b-HLH-ZIP) transcription factor implicated in pigmentation, mast cells and bone development. There are two known isoforms of Mi differing by 66 amino acids at the amino terminus.
