Special Issue "Fe-S Proteins in Health and Disease"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 July 2021).
Iron-sulfur (Fe-S) clusters are ubiquitous redox active prosthetic groups typically involved in electron transfer (e.g., mitochondrial respiration) in essential cellular processes. However, Fe-S proteins were recently found in most of the eukaryotic organelles supporting diverse and unexpected functions (e.g., DNA polymerases and repair, transcriptional regulators). Because of the essential cellular roles played by Fe-S proteins, defects in either Fe-S proteins or the biogenesis/repair of their cluster lead to several human diseases, including neurologic dysfunction, cancer and diabetes.
We cordially invite authors in the field to submit original research or review articles highlighting the implications of Fe-S proteins in diseases and human health, including the development of drugs targeting Fe-S proteins.

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. Biomedicines 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 2000 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.
