Abstract: SUMOylation, a post-translational modification, is essential for plant normal growth and development. To date, thousands of possible SUMO substrates have been identified, but due to the relatively low SUMOylation level, biological significance of the SUMOylation remains largely unknown. Here, we summarized the SUMOylation detection methods, including in vitro and in vivo SUMOylation assays, which help to understand the functions of SUMOylation in plants.
