In acute promyelocytic leukaemia (APL), arsenic trioxide induces degradation of the fusion protein encoded by the PML-RARA oncogene, differentiation of leukaemic cells and produces clinical remissions. SUMOylation of its PML moiety was previously implicated, but the nature of the degradation pathway involved and the role of PML-RARalpha catabolism in the(More)
Arsenic, an ancient drug used in traditional Chinese medicine, has attracted worldwide interest because it shows substantial anticancer activity in patients with acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL). Arsenic trioxide (As2O3) exerts its therapeutic effect by promoting degradation of an oncogenic protein that drives the growth of APL cells, PML-RARalpha (a(More)
Using a mouse model recapitulating the main features of human chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), we uncover the hierarchy of leukemic stem and progenitor cells contributing to disease pathogenesis. We refine the characterization of CML leukemic stem cells (LSCs) to the most immature long-term hematopoietic stem cells (LT-HSCs) and identify some important(More)
As(2)O(3) cures acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) by initiating PML/RARA oncoprotein degradation, through sumoylation of its PML moiety. However, how As(2)O(3) initiates PML sumoylation has remained largely unexplained. As(2)O(3) binds vicinal cysteines and increases reactive oxygen species (ROS) production. We demonstrate that upon As(2)O(3) exposure, PML(More)
The promyelocytic leukemia (PML) protein organizes PML nuclear bodies (NBs), which are stress-responsive domains where many partner proteins accumulate. Here, we clarify the basis for NB formation and identify stress-induced partner sumoylation as the primary NB function. NB nucleation does not rely primarily on intermolecular interactions between the PML(More)
The major long-term prognostic factor for breast cancer patients treated by first-line chemotherapy is response to treatment. We have previously shown that complete responses to high doses epirubicin-cyclophosphamide were observed only in human tumors bearing a TP53 mutation. Three xenografted human breast tumors, 2 of them with a TP53 mutation and one of(More)
