Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Metalloenzymes are central to a wide range of essential biological activities, including nucleic acid modification, protein degradation, and many others. The role of metalloenzymes in these processes also makes them central for the progression of many diseases and, as such, makes metalloenzymes attractive targets for therapeutic intervention. Increasing awareness of the role metalloenzymes play in disease and their importance as a class of targets has amplified interest in the development of new strategies to develop inhibitors and ultimately useful drugs. Several drug discovery efforts focused on metalloenzymes and attempting to map out the current landscape of high-value metalloenzyme targets are ongoing in many different labs worldwide.

In the present Special Issue entitled “Metal Chelating Agents in Medicinal Chemistry”, we are inviting the submission of original research articles, letters, and/or reviews from academia, research institutes, not-for-profit organizations, or industry that present work related to metal chelating agents.

Dr. Grigoris Zoidis
Guest Editor
