Melanoma Genomic Instability increased by DNA damage remodelling the MITF interactome


The Goding lab shows that Microphthalmia-associated Transcription Factor (MITF) plays a non-transcriptional role in shaping the DNA Damage Response programmes. MITF is phosphorylated on exposure to DNA damaging agents, and interacts with a DNA repair complex, increasing the level of genomic instability within cells which can have an impact on cancer initiation.
