Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues

The International Proteomic Conference in conjunction with the 4th Asia Oceania Agricultural Proteomics Organisation Conference will be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from 15 to 17 August, 2017.

The theme for the conference is “Proteomics in Biotechnology and Life Sciences” which aptly represents the current state of proteomics technology that is applicable in all aspects of biological sciences. Therefore, in this conference, we will cover topics related to proteomics that range from agriculture to biomedical sciences. The aim of the conference is to provide a platform for knowledge exchange, networking, as well as information and technology sharing among distinguished proteomic researchers from all over the world. The list of confirmed presenters for this conference include Setsuko Komatsu, Harvey Milliar, Chen Sixue, Lin Qing Song, Sebastian Carpentier, Chew Fook Tim, Shaojun Dai, Onn Hashim, Susan Wilson, Mohd Hasnain, Subhra Chakraborty and many more. For details, please visit http://ipc2017.weebly.com/

Participants of the conference are cordially invited to contribute original research papers or reviews to this Special Issue of Proteomes.

Sincerely,
Assoc. Prof. Dr. Chiew Foan Chin
Prof. Dr. Setsuko Komatsu

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. Proteomes is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 350 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.

Herbal medicine is a clinical practice of utilizing medicinal plant derivatives for therapeutic purposes. It has an enduring history worldwide and plays a significant role in the fight against various diseases. Herbal drug combinations often exhibit synergistic therapeutic action compared with single-constituent dosage, and can also enhance the cytotoxicity induced by chemotherapeutic drugs. To explore the mechanism underlying the pharmacological action of herbs, proteomic approaches have been applied to the physiology of medicinal plants and its effects on animals. This review article focuses on the existing proteomics-based medicinal plant research and discusses the following topics: (i) plant metabolic pathways that synthesize an array of bioactive compounds; (ii) pharmacological action of plants tested using in vivo and in vitro studies; and (iii) the application of proteomic approaches to indigenous plants with scarce sequence information. The accumulation of proteomic information in a biological or medicinal context may help in formulating the effective use of medicinal plants. Full article
