Polo-like kinase 1 has hundreds of substrates and multiple functions that operate within the ∼60 min of mitosis. Herein, we describe a chemical-genetic system that allows particular substrates to be "toggled" into or out of chemical control using engineered phosphoacceptor selectivity. Biochemical assays and phosphoproteomic analysis of mitotic cell extracts showed that Plk1 (L197F) and Plk1 (L197S/L211A) selectively phosphorylate Ser and Thr, respectively. Read More
