HI.. got a bit of a duff question here.. is it only the
phospho-tyrosine residues that can act as docking sites
for proteins? If so does this mean that the affects of phospho
serine and phospho threonine is entirely structural in nature?
I was just wondering as it occured to me the other day that
SH2 domains bind Y-p not Tp- or S-p and I could not think of anything
which did bind these amino acids.... if anyone does know
of an example I would greatly appreciate it...
