We are pleased to invite you to this Special Issue on “Protein–Lipid Interactions: Recent Studies, Perspectives, and Challenges”. Biological membranes are complex heterogeneous systems composed of lipids, proteins, and carbohydrates. Membranes facilitate essential biological functions that are driven by protein–lipid interactions, in a highly dynamic manner. Nevertheless, many questions related to the chemistry and physics of lipids and proteins are still not understood today. The lack of proper understanding of molecular mechanisms important for the functioning of the biological membranes also hinders practical applications in the industries.
This Special Issue aims to analyze and cover a broad spectrum of protein–lipid interactions and present new information in this area of research. Data on the organizational principles of cell membranes, the structure and function of membrane and lipid binding proteins, the mechanistic details of these interactions, and the study of protein–lipid interplay in vital biological functions may be presented.
For this Special Issue of Membranes, authors are invited to present their recent results, and both original papers and reviews are welcome.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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. Membranes is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
