25 years after its official beginning in the literature, the proteasome is now recognized as a key regulator of cellular homeostasis, critical for the control of all biological processes. Yet, despite the rapid expansion of the scientific fields in which this fascinating complex (or more exactly family of complexes) has been shown to be involved, it is still often viewed by many biologists as a simple garbage can, largely solved and with no more hidden secrets.
With this special topic-focused compilation on “proteasome and its regulators”, freely accessible online from all over the world, we would like to provide to a general audience a large overview of the present state of our knowledge on this fascinating family of complexes. From what is clearly established to the many open questions that remain to be answered, our objective is to assemble a series of reviews or original articles that will constitute together a “proteasome encyclopedia” in which everyone could find up-to-date information in the different issues directly connected to proteasome biology.
We are thus welcoming any manuscript on the evolution, structure, assembly, mechanisms of action, regulation, or relationship to other biological processes, of the proteasome and its regulators.
We look forward to reading your contributions,
Prof. Michael H. Glickman

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. Biomolecules 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 650 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.
