    Protein phosphorylation is a dynamic post-translational modification critical for biological responses. At the level of individual molecules, phosphorylation dynamics can have important functional implications, but this information is rarely quantified. We discuss how rapid phosphorylation-dephosphorylation cycles could underlie important signaling properties, including the ability to rapidly bind and release proteins.
