Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Chromatin is a highly dynamic structure that is extensively and reversibly modified by various factors, including enzymes running DNA transactions, chromatin remodelers, histone and DNA modifications, and other factors to ensure the development and survival of a cell. Chromatin remodelers participate in nearly every DNA transaction in the cell nuclei, including DNA replication, transcription, and repair. Chromatin remodelers include histone chaperones, histone-modifying enzymes and ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling complexes. Chromatin remodelers facilitate various transitions in chromatin structure, including nucleosome sliding, assembly, and disassembly, changes in the nucleosome structure, and histone variant exchange. They also participate in histone transport, deposition, eviction, and storage. However, their mechanisms of action, interacting partners, and their roles in the regulation of cellular metabolism and development of human diseases remain to be further established.

We invite researchers to present their studies of the mechanisms of action and regulation of histone chaperones and chromatin remodelers and their complexes with proteins and other biological molecules, and to discuss their data and opinions on the pages of the International Journal of Molecular Sciences.

Prof. Dr. Vasily M. Studitsky
Guest Editor

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.
