The HSR domain is important for the nuclear body targeting as well as for the dimerization. Contains one Pro-Xaa-Val-Xaa-Leu (PxVxL) motif, which is required for interaction with chromoshadow domains. This motif requires additional residues -7, -6, +4 and +5 of the central Val which contact the chromoshadow domain.
Sumoylated. Sumoylation depends on a functional nuclear localization signal but is not necessary for nuclear import or nuclear body targeting.
Nucleus > PML body. Found in the nuclear body, also known as nuclear domain 10 (ND10), PML oncogenic domain (POD), nuclear dots (ND) and KR body. The nuclear body is a nucleoplasmic structure of punctate shape, which varies in size and number. Induction by interferon and may be cell cycle stages modulate the subnuclear localization of the isoforms.
