Special Issue Information
Life is governed by a network of mass, energy and information transformations that require a large number of functional elements. With the evolution of increasingly complex multicellular organisms, some of these elements have taken over more than one task, leading to the appearance of multi-functional proteins. Many members of the NME gene/protein family have acquired in addition to their basic nucleoside diphosphate kinase (NDPK) activity important additional functions. These are crucial in bioenergetics, cell signaling, cancer & metastasis or development, and act not only on nucleotides but also on interacting proteins, membrane lipids or DNA in different cellular compartments. This special issue of IJMS will address the entire diversity of current NME research and allow first-hand insight into recent progress in the field.

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 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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
