Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Proteins and peptides play pivotal roles in various biological processes, serving as essential molecules in cellular signaling, enzymatic reactions and structural support.

This Special Issue aims to elucidate the intricate molecular mechanisms underlying the bioactivity of proteins and peptides, shedding light on their diverse functions and regulatory pathways. We welcome scholars to contribute original research articles and reviews that delve into the molecular basis of protein and peptide bioactivity, including their interactions with cellular receptors, signal transduction pathways and physiological effects.

Furthermore, this Special Issue highlights the wide-ranging applications of proteins and bioactive peptides in fields such as drug development, functional foods, nutraceuticals and biotechnology. By providing a comprehensive overview of the molecular biology aspects of proteins and peptides, this issue aims to facilitate advancements in understanding their health benefits and therapeutic potential. Join us in exploring the molecular intricacies of proteins and bioactive peptides and their implications for human health and disease.

Dr. Michele M. Iskandar
Guest Editor

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Current Issues in Molecular 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 2200 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.
