The paramount relevance of protein phosphorylation in health and disease motivated us to gather several contributions from experts working in this area in order to portray the recent developments in the field. Our effort and the effort of 54 authors with their 12 contributions gave rise to this Research Topic, which represents a valuable forum where phosphorylation is discussed from different angles, including bioinformatics approaches and experimental methods that are currently used to decipher the complex mechanisms underlying this bewitching post-translational modification (PTM). The articles collected in this Research Topic illustrate very diverse aspects of phosphorylation, such as its biological effects and induced structural changes, the role of kinases and phosphatases as therapeutic targets, the use of phosphorylation profiles as biomarkers, how phosphorylation dys-regulation may cause disease, and more.
