The less common splice variants AS-II, AS-III, and AS-IV have a restricted pattern of tissue-specific expression. These variants maintain the open reading frame, but encode an N-terminally truncated PLZF protein [81]. The PLZF protein is a DNA-binding zinc finger transcription factor of 673 amino acids that generally acts as a transcriptional repressor [8]. The Nterminal 118 amino acids constitute the PLZF BTB (broad-complex, tramtrack, bric a brac) domain, also known as a POZ (pox virus and zinc finger) domain, which is essential for transcriptional repression [56].

This effect of PLZF might be relevant to APL. Loss of one allele of PLZF might lead to deregulation of the stem cell; a decision in favor of proliferation may be made rather than quiescence. In this regard we note that while PLZF is a growth suppressor, the RARα-PLZF oncoprotein, which can bind to many of the same DNA-binding sites of wildtype PLZF, activates genes that PLZF represses and induces a myeloproliferative disease in mice. 42 M. J. McConnell · J. D. Licht Summary The study of the t(11;17)-associated forms of APL and the PLZF protein has served as a paradigm for the role that aberrant transcriptional repression plays in hematological malignancy.
