Microphthalmia transcription factor (MITF) is a basic-helix-loop-helix-leucine zipper-type transcription factor. The mutant mi and Mi(wh) alleles encode MITFs with deletion and alteration of a single amino acid, respectively, whereas the tg is a null mutation. In coculture with NIH/3T3 fibroblasts, the numbers of cultured mast cells (CMCs) derived from C57BL/6 (B6)(mi/mi), B6(Miwh/Miwh), and B6(tg/tg) mice that adhered to NIH/3T3 fibroblasts were one third as large as the number of B6(+/+) CMCs… CONTINUE READING
