Pathogenesis of acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) has been proposed to involve transcriptional repression through enhanced corepressors binding onto RARA moieties of PML/RARA homodimers. Unexpectedly, we show that the K160 sumoylation site in the PML moiety of PML/RARA is required for efficient immortalization/differentiation arrest ex vivo, implying that RARA homodimerization is insufficient to fully immortalize primary hematopoietic progenitor cells. Similarly, PML/RARAK160R transgenic mice… CONTINUE READING
