  1. The abundance/activity of PML protein can be regulated at the level of transcription, alternative splicing, translation and subcellular distribution. The types of regulation are listed in the first column; the extracellular agent or stress that contributes to the PML regulation is summarized in the second column; regulation factors that target or modify PML are shown in the third column and the final column describes effects of these regulatory factors on PML regulation
