Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Membrane proteins perform many important biological processes, such as ion transport, electrical excitability, cell communication, signal transduction, and protein secretion, and are associated with diseases like heart disease, cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, etc.

Current imaging, diffraction, spectroscopy, and computational methods allow near atomic resolution models of membrane proteins to be curated, revealing key aspects of their structure and functionally important dynamics. This Special Issue welcomes the submission of original research and review manuscripts focusing on the advances in the membrane protein structure and dynamics.

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. Biology 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 1400 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.
