Two articles in a recent issue of Molecular Cell (Shen et al., 2006; Lin et al., 2006) demonstrate that noncovalent interactions between the SUMO moieties of SUMO-modified PML, and SUMO binding motifs on PML and other PML nuclear-body-associated proteins, affect the assembly of PML nuclear bodies and the recruitment of proteins in and out of these subnuclear structures.
