Research Backgrounds


Transcription factor that specifically recognizes and binds E-box sequences (5'-CANNTG-3'). Efficient DNA-binding requires dimerization with itself or with another MiT/TFE family member such as TFE3 or MITF. In association with TFE3, activates the expression of CD40L in T-cells, thereby playing a role in T-cell-dependent antibody responses in activated CD4(+) T-cells and thymus-dependent humoral immunity. Specifically recognizes and binds the CLEAR-box sequence (5'-GTCACGTGAC-3') present in the regulatory region of many lysosomal genes, leading to activate their expression. It thereby plays a central role in expression of lysosomal genes. Acts as a positive regulator of autophagy by promoting expression of genes involved in autophagy. Specifically recognizes the gamma-E3 box, a subset of E-boxes, present in the heavy-chain immunoglobulin enhancer. Plays a role in the signal transduction processes required for normal vascularization of the placenta. Regulates lysosomal positioning in response to nutrient deprivation by promoting the expression of PIP4P1.


Sumoylated; does not affect dimerization with MITF.

Subcellular Location:

Cytoplasm. Nucleus.
Note: Mainly present in the cytoplasm (PubMed:23434374). Under aberrant lysosomal storage conditions, it translocates from the cytoplasm to the nucleus (PubMed:23434374). The translocation to the nucleus is regulated by ATP13A2 (PubMed:23434374, PubMed:27278822). In macrophages, translocates into the nucleus upon live S.enterica infection (PubMed:27184844).

Subunit Structure:

Homodimer and heterodimer; with TFE3 or MITF.


The leucin zipper region is essential for homo- or heterodimerization and high-affinity DNA binding. DNA binding is mediated by the basic region.

Belongs to the MiT/TFE family.
