This overview discusses the significance and roles of protein phosphorylation in regulation of protein function. Sites of phosphorylation are described as well as methods for detecting both radiolabeled and unlabeled phosphoamino acids. Importantly, protein kinases and phosphatases, the regulators of phosphorylation are discussed.
