Special Issue "Protein-Lipid Interactions as Key Regulators of Cell Function"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 October 2020.
Interests: heat-shock response; membrane-associated heat-shock proteins; protein–lipid interactions
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Protein–lipid interactions regulate the subcellular localizations and activities of proteins. Furthermore, many membrane-associated proteins modulate the dynamics of cellular membranes. Therefore, the characterization of the exact mechanisms by which these interactions occur is fundamental to understanding key biological processes. The scope of this Special Issue is to bring together manuscripts that characterize protein–lipid interactions, aiming to understand the organizational principles of cell membranes, elucidate the structure and function of membrane proteins, determine the mechanistic details of these interactions, and develop technologies to study how proteins interact with lipids.

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. Membranes 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 1400 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.
