Special Issue "Structural Studies of Ribozymes and Regulatory ncRNA Machineries"
A special issue of Non-Coding RNA (ISSN 2311-553X).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2021) | Viewed by 8843
Interests: study of mitochondrial import of RNAs using synchrotron-based methods and synthetic biology; structural studies of ribozymes and ncRNA regulatory machineries like PKR-related processes; hCOV transcriptional and translational regulation; maturation of mitochondrial ribosomes; recent edition of a book on ribozymes
Ribozymes and ncRNAs are spread over the whole tree of life and their roles in the regulation of biological processes from gene regulation to the response to pathogens are treated with increasing attention. Although the role of ncRNAs like riboswitches are more and more understood due to their associations with metabolites, the functions of ribozymes or other ncRNAs often remain quite mysterious since identifying the controlled processes or the molecular partners is difficult. The journal ncRNA offers the opportunity to publish your most recent research on this topic rapidly and visibly. This special issue will encover experimental studies or reviews dealing with RNA structure analysis by experimental, theoretical, or integrated approaches. This set of papers will constitute an interesting snapshot of current RNA structural studies and of the employed investigation methods.

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. Non-Coding RNA is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 1600 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.
