Special Issue "Biomolecules Modification"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (10 April 2016)
Biomolecules are essential components involved in all biological processes in living organisms. In particular, peptides and proteins are essential for many different biological processes. Posttranslational modifications of proteins represent essential steps in their final biological activity. In this way, chemical biology approaches have been developed in the last few years in order to create new modified artificial or semisynthetic proteins very useful to study and know the behavior of different biological processes in different diseases, such as Alzheimer, cancer, Parkinson, etc. Furthermore, the capacity of some proteins to act, catalyzing several natural or unnatural processes have been altered and improved by different modification strategies. New oligonucleotides or oligosaccharides represent a class of new pharmaceuticals, such as drugs or vaccines for different diseases, such as Hepatitis, HIV, malaria, etc. Nevertheless, to access novel modified biomolecules, specially developing new strategies and methodologies to create them is still needed.
This Special Issue will be focused on innovative and novel research in the modification of biomolecules by different biological or chemical strategies and their application in organic, bioorganic, or medicinal chemistry.

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 papers will be 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. Molecules 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 1800 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.
