phosphorylation



phosphorylation defined in 1951 year

phosphorylation - phosphorylation;
phosphorylation - Bringing about the combination of an organic acceptor molecule (e.g. sugar) with phosphate. In phosphorylation of some substances 'high energy bonds' (indicated by ~) are formed; the resulting compounds are highly reactive in water with other organic molecules in the presence of appropriate enzymes; when their phosphate is transferred energy becomes available for biochemical and other work. Such processes form the fundamental energy-transfer system in metabolism. Most important high-energy compound is ATP, universally present in living organisms.
