Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Stability is an essential property of protein structures. It can be of crucial importance for the function or regulation of specific proteins. Changing the stability of protein complexes can be a driving force in regulation and communication pathways. Mutations that alter the stability of a protein can lead to diseases through various mechanisms, like diminished function or protein aggregation. Folding intermediates and molten globules can be stabilized by external helping agents, and post-translational modifications can also influence protein stability as a regulation method. A wide repository of experimental and theoretical methods can deal with the problem of protein stability. As Guest Editor of the “Protein Stability Research: 2.0 Edition” Special Issue, I would like to invite you to contribute original articles or reviews related to protein stability.

Dr. Csaba Magyar

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.
