Alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (alpha MSH) stimulates transcription of MITF in developing melanocytes and in melanoma cells by promoting the cAMP-dependent phosphorylation of CREB1. Phosphorylated CREB1 binds to a CRE element in the MITF-M promoter as assessed by electrophoretic mobility shift assay and stimulates transcription of MITF (Bertolotto et al,1998; Price et al, 1998). CREB-stimulated transcriptional activation of the MITF-M promoter is also dependent on the upstream SOX10 binding site (Huber et al, 2003).
