Abstract: Abstract TFE3 and TFEB are members of the MiT family of HLH–leucine zipper transcription factors. Recent studies demonstrated that they bind overlapping sets of promoters and are post‐transcriptionally regulated through a similar mechanism. However, while Tcfeb knockout (KO) mice die during early embryonic development, no apparent phenotype was reported in Tfe3 KO mice. Thus raising the need to characterize the physiological role of TFE3 and elucidate its relationship with TFEB. TFE3 deficiency resulted in al…
