Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This special issue of Molecules is dedicated to Protein-Carbohydrate Interactions. In recent years, it has been clearly established that protein-carbohydrate interactions underlie many important biological events. Carbohydrate chains of glycoproteins, glycolipids, proteoglycans, and polysaccharides mediate a multitude of biological processes through their interactions with carbohydrate-recognizing and binding proteins. The importance of protein carbohydrate recognition has been validated with the consolidation of the field of glycobiology.

In animal systems, numerous regulatory programs have been deciphered, demonstrating that carbohydrate-binding proteins contribute to cellular signalling through interaction with specific N- and O-glycans present on their interacting partners. Although much less information is available with respect to the importance of protein-carbohydrate recognition in other kingdoms of life, these interactions are clearly of the utmost importance for defence reactions, stress signalling, growth, and development. The specific recognition between a protein and a carbohydrate is often only a first step in a sequence of events. This Special Issue will concentrate on protein-carbohydrate interactions and their biological significance. We encourage authors to submit research papers and comprehensive reviews for this Special Issue, and hope that the topics covered will enlighten the fascinating world of glycobiology.

Submission

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a 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).
