Promyelocytic leukemia protein (PML) is a tumor suppressor involved in the t(15;17) translocation that causes acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL). PML is located at multiple nuclear domains known as PML oncogenic domains (PODs), whose structures are dynamically regulated and disrupted in t(15;17) APL cells. PML is involved in several important cellular processes; however, its exact function is unclear. Recently, a POD-associated protein was found to be transcriptional repressor, suggesting a new role for PODs in regulating transcriptional repression.
