Reversible phosphorylation is one of the most common post-translational modifications in plants and can affect protein function, subcellular localization, interacting partners and stability. Importantly, protein phosphorylation is one of the critical regulatory mechanisms in signal transduction pathways modulating plant growth, development and responses to the environment. The past few years have seen significant advances in techniques and technologies in global phosphoproteomic studies as well as functional analyses of specific phosphorylation sites.

For more than two decades a series of NSF, USDA and DOE supported workshops focusing on plant phosphorylation have been instrumental in coordinating and advancing research in this area. These early workshops also led to the development of an international series of meetings also focused on plant protein phosphorylation. The purpose of this Research Topic is to capture advances highlighted at the most recent NSF-supported Plant Protein Phosphorylation Workshop (Lake Tahoe, CA, USA) and at the 12th International Symposium on Plant Protein Phosphorylation (Tübingen, Germany) that were conducted during September, 2011.

The Research Topic will provide an overview of the current state of protein phosphorylation research in plants including phosphoproteomic studies, targeted analyses, bioinformatic techniques and biochemical and genetic characterizations as a means to understand phosphorylation signaling networks in plants. Authors are encouraged to submit original research articles, methods articles, reviews, mini-reviews or perspective articles.

The Research Topic Plant Protein Phosphorylation, represents a combined focus between both Frontiers in Plant Proteomics and Frontiers in Plant Physiology and welcomes submissions in either specialty area.


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
