MetaCyc Gene-Ontology-Terms Class: GO:0016772 - transferase activity, transferring phosphorus-containing groups

Definition: Catalysis of the transfer of a phosphorus-containing group from one compound (donor) to another (acceptor).

Note that this term encompasses all kinase activities, as well as activities that transfer other phosphorus-containing groups such as diphosphate or nucleotides.
