Identification and analysis of phosphopeptides

J Chromatogr B Analyt Technol Biomed Life Sci. 2004 Apr 15;803(1):111-20. doi: 10.1016/j.jchromb.2003.09.006.


Reversible phosphorylation of serine, threonine and tyrosine residues in proteins is one of the key events in signal transduction. To understand the process of signal transduction on a molecular level, it is imperative to identify phosphorylation sites in proteins. In this review, we offer an overview of the different methods/technologies currently available to identify protein phosphorylation sites.
