Special Issue "21st Century Enzymology: Further Advances in Identification and Characterization of Enzymes"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 November 2023 | Viewed by 6525
Interests: enzyme functional assignment; enzymatic reaction mechanism determination; enzyme inhibitor discovery and design; protein dynamics; allosteric enzyme regulation
Enzymology is a central area of biochemistry, at the intersection of biology, chemistry, physics and more recently computational sciences. The study of enzymes builds from bioinformatic analyses to allow the definitive assignment of function of a gene and its corresponding protein. Enzyme kinetic and mechanistic analyses, aid in our understanding of reaction catalysis and metabolic pathways. These results when combined with enzyme structure and dynamical studies, provide the foundation for numerous applications from drug discovery and development efforts to bacterial biosynthesis to bioremediation.
This special edition will explore the identification of new enzymes and their characterization. Protein structural and dynamical studies to help understand the mode of action of enzymes are also invited, as are studies toward the development of enzyme inhibitors.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
