Special Issue "Protein Structure, Function and Dynamics in Diseases and Therapeutics"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2020) | Viewed by 19563
This Special Issue of Biomedicines will focus on the role of protein structure and function on the progression and treatment of disease. For many years, the role that a protein’s structure plays in its biological function has been well appreciated, and indeed, it is this correlation of structure and function that has led to significant advances in structurally-based drug design and therapeutic approaches. In recent years, the role of a protein’s dynamics has become more deeply appreciated in terms of function in relation to health and disease, as well as proteins that do not natively contain a single well-defined state, the so-called intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs). The dynamic protein and the interactions made within the cellular context remain central issues of biomedicine.
We cordially invite authors in the field to submit original research or review articles highlighting the importance of protein structure and function, including novel approaches to study protein dynamics and IDPs in the progression and treatment of disease.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Biomedicines is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
