Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Volume 2 of the highly successful Life Special Issue entitled "Structure, Activity, and Function of Protein Methyltransferases” (originally published in 2021, will collect additional reviews, all written by leading experts in the field, about individual Protein methyltransferases and the specific biological roles of individual Protein methyltransferases in biological processes such as cancer, chromatin regulation, immune modulation, neurobiology and development. The scope covers Protein lysine methyltransferases, Protein arginine methyltransferases, but also the less abundant Protein glutamine methyltransferases, Protein histidine methyltransferases and Protein N-terminal end methyltransferases. It encompasses reviews of particular enzymes, groups of related enzymes and reviews in the light of particular biological processes of individual enzymes or groups of enzymes. This will make this Special Issue a unique and very useful resource for researchers from the Protein methylation and Protein methyltransferase field.

We invite suggestions for manuscripts to be included in this Special Issue. Please contact the editors before preparing the manuscript for a pre-arrangement of the topic.
