Special Issue "Interaction between Metal Compounds and Proteins 2.0"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2023 | Viewed by 2146
Metal ions play many roles, ranging from physiological stabilization of native protein structure, through pathological induction of improper structure and aggregation of proteins or peptides, to structuring of the organic scaffold in metallodrugs. Thus, a thorough knowledge of the interaction of metal compounds with proteins is crucial for our understanding of physiology and pathology and allows us to design effective therapeutics or research tools.
Quantitative descriptions of binding strength, structural characterizations, and molecular simulations of metal compound–protein interactions are highly welcome. Research on biological and biochemical/biophysical activities of such complexes is also within the scope of this Special Issue. We encourage researchers working on these topics to submit research articles, communications, or reviews for this issue.

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.
