Furthermore, a-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (a-MSH) and cAMP-elevating agents, such as forskolin and IBMX, through the activation of protein kinase A (PKA) and cAMP-related element binding protein (CREB) transcription factor, promote an increase in the expression of microphthalmia-associated transcription factor (MITF), a master regulator of the development and differentiation of melanocytes.
