Adding or removing a single phosphate group can dramatically change a protein's activity, and cells make use of this modification to control protein function in response to signals from the environment. Now scientists have developed an easy method to detect protein phosphorylation (Anal. Chem., DOI: 10.1021/ac2000708). The researchers say the technique could lead to a greater understanding of cell signaling pathways and how to manipulate them . . .
