cAMP signalling is decisive for recovery of nuclear bodies (PODs) during maturation of RA-resistant t(15;17) promyelocytic leukemia NB4 cells expressing PML-RAR alpha.

We analysed the expression of retinoid receptors and PML in relation to the morphology of PML-containing nuclear bodies (PODs) in maturation sensitive (NB4) and resistant subclones (NB4-R1 and R2) of the promyelocytic NB4 cell line. The basal level of RARalpha, RXRalpha and PML mRNA and protein were roughly the same in the three cell lines. While NB4 and… CONTINUE READING
