Protein kinases represent an important family of enzymes involved in the regulation of many cellular processes. They phosphorylate proteins, and in turn, regulate their biological activities. As phosphorylation is a most frequent reversible post-translational modification, it has to be dynamically regulated. When defining the impact of phosphorylation on protein activities, it is clear that the presence or absence of phosphate groups change the conformation of the protein, and thus modify its activities. From that view, it has become clear that protein kinases play specific regulatory roles throughout the cell, and their defects may result in the development of various diseases.
For this Special Issue, we look forward to receiving review articles as well as original research and methodological manuscripts related to understanding the biological functions of protein kinases, with a special focus on the dynamic nature of their regulatory activities.

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.
