Special Issue "Enzyme-Catalyzed Approaches towards Natural Products and Their Analogs"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2023) | Viewed by 13361
Interests: microbial biosynthetic pathways; selective derivatization of polyketides; microbial and chemoenzymatic synthesis of terpenoids; enzyme engineering; metabolomics
Interests: enzymatic reaction cascades; biocatalytic process development; cell-free protein synthesis (CFPS); biotransformations in microfluidic systems; enzyme immobilization
Natural products are a constant source of new chemical entities that have always inspired fundamental biological and chemical research as well as medical and technological applications. In recent years, it has become increasingly feasible to access natural products or their analogues by using biocatalytic cascades. This subject is studied in whole cells as well as in cell-free systems, and experiments have been inspired by progress made in the fields of enzyme engineering, immobilization of enzymes, and flow chemistry.
In this Special Issue, we would like to illustrate the interaction of these disciplines. One focus will be on multistage enzymatic cascades, both in vitro and in whole cells.

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. Catalysts 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 2700 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.
