Protein phosphorylation and dephosphorylation play key regulatory roles in many aspects of plant growth, development, and metabolism. These include control of cell division, pathways of carbon and nitrogen metabolism, and the transduction of metabolic, hormonal, and environmental signals.This is a rapidly expanding area of research and this book is the first attempt to cover all aspects of protein phosphorylation in plants in a single volume. It includes work from key groups at the forefront of research in the area, with studies at the biochemical, molecular, and cell biologicallevels.

Editorial Reviews

`'...a useful collection of articles for plant scientists...I found this book interesting and a useful way of reviewing the advances in the diverse areas in which protein phosphorylation has proved to be important in plants. It is well produced...the standard is good...for postgraduates thiscollection might present an ideal way to become familiar with the range of plant protein phosphorylation research.''N.H.Battey, Annals of Botany 80: 825-834, 1997.
