Special Issue "Enzyme Catalysis"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2016)
Enzymes are the catalysts that speed up and control biological reactions. Life would not be possible without the action of enzymes. Our understanding of enzymes has helped to facilitate drug discovery, and the development of new enzymes has application in a broad range of disciplines, including synthetic biology, industrial chemical processes, and materials science. Mechanistic information continues to develop from traditional physical organic chemistry tools, and newer methodologies are providing insight into the macromolecular machinery of enzymes.
This Special Issue will highlight our mechanistic and structural understanding of enzymes, and how that information is being leveraged towards the development of new catalysts. We are also interested in highlighting how enzyme technology is impacting a wide variety of fields from medicine to chemical industry.

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. Catalysts 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 1300 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.
