phosphorylation

 [fos″for-ĭ-la´shun]
the process of introducing a phosphate group into an organic molecule.
oxidative phosphorylation the final common pathway of aerobic energy metabolism in which high-energy phosphate bonds are formed by phosphorylation of ADP to ATP coupled with the transfer of electrons along a chain of carrier proteins with molecular oxygen as the final acceptor. It occurs in mitochondria.

phos·phor·y·la·tion

(fos'fōr-i-lā'shŭn),
Addition of phosphate to an organic compound, such as glucose to produce glucose monophosphate, through the action of a phosphotransferase (phosphorylase) or kinase.

phos·phor·y·la·tion

(fos'fŏr-i-lā'shŭn)
Addition of phosphate to an organic compound, such as glucose to produce glucose monophosphate, through the action of a phosphotransferase (phosphorylase) or kinase.

phosphorylation

The addition of a phosphate group to an organic molecule.

phosphorylation

the process in which one of more phosphate groups is added to a molecule. Such reactions occur regularly in biological systems. For example, in AEROBIC RESPIRATION glucose is phosphorylated in GLYCOLYSIS; ADP is phosphorylated to ATP at the substrate level and via the ELECTRON TRANSPORT SYSTEM; in plants ATP is produced by PHOTOPHOSPHORYLATION.

Lactate is continuously produced during normal metabolism and may serve as a source of energy in conditions of decreased oxidative phosphorilation. Thus, increased levels of lactate may be an indicative of metabolic dysfunction.
Phosphorilation of Fyn, mediated by GSK-3p\ is followed by phosphorilated Fyn translocation into the nucleus where it exerts its activity by phosphorilating Nrf2 at Tyr 568 thus leading to nuclear export and degradation of Nrf2 (68).
PLC activation regulates [H.sub.2][O.sub.2] production and thyroglobulin iodination, while phosphorilation of protein kinase A increases iodide uptake, thyroid peroxidase, and thyroglobulin synthesis.

Several works report that photoinhibition of PS II is inversely proportional to the phosphorilation level of PS II proteins.
Desmedipham controlled Amaranthus retroflexus by prohibiting Hill reaction from phosphorilation oxidative [2].
The synthesis of ATP from ADP plus a high energy phosphate group is called oxidative phosphorilation and is dependent on the electron flow through the electron transport chain via electron carriers.
Another factor that causes difficulties for the implementation of the technique, is the desensitization of the receptors caused by the administration of agonistas, phenomenon that occurs due to the phosphorilation of the receptor or its recapture to the cytoplasm in a process mediated by chlatrine (10).
