The retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) has a essential role in maintaining visual function and dedifferentiation of RPE contributes to the pathophysiology of several ocular diseases[PMID: 22523078]. Microphthalmia-associated transcription factor (MITF) is a key regulator of RPE differentiation that is also down-regulated in dedifferentiated hfRPE cells. MITF is a basic helix-loop-helix (hHLH)-leucine zipper protein that involves in the development of various cell types, including neural crest-derived melanocytes and optic cup-derived retinal pigment epithelial cells [PMID: 10578055].
