Special Issue "Trends in the Development of Enzyme Inhibitors"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2018
This Special Issue is entitled “Trends in the Development of Enzyme Inhibitors”. The identification of small molecules able to inhibit the activity of specific target enzymes is probably one of the most studied and important research fields in the history of drug discovery. Nevertheless, due to the growing amount of information regarding the role of enzymes in various therapeutic areas, this field is still one of the most studied. Thanks to all the reported studies about new enzyme targets that may represent innovative therapeutic opportunities, and also thanks to the development and optimization of novel technologies, the identification of enzyme inhibitors has become a common goal for medicinal chemists and chemical biologists. This Special Issue aims to provide a forum for the dissemination of: a) the latest information on novel approaches for the identification and optimization of enzyme inhibitors and b) research studies reporting the design, synthesis, and biological evaluation of potentially-active inhibitors.
Prof. Dr. Tiziano Tuccinardi
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. Molecules 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.
