Interactions between enzymes and their cognate modulators of activity (inhibitors or activators) are highly specific, efficient, and crucial for a range of physiologic/pathologic processes. Many highly-used drugs belong to the class of enzyme inhibitors. Considering such interactions as key examples for molecular recognition processes, IJMS will publish a Special Issue on these topics. Both review and original articles dealing with molecular recognition processes based on enzyme-inhibitor/activator interactions will be considered for this Special Issue. These topics are relevant for drug design campaigns of more specific, efficient and selective drugs, as well as for the understanding of fundamental processes, which intervene in the complex phenomena of molecular recognition processes between macromolecular receptor (i.e., enzymes and small molecules acting as modulators of their activity).

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences 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 1800 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.
