One of the big social impacts of biotechnology is the production of recombinant proteins. Recombinant proteins have dramatically changed the art of medical treatments, drug discoveries, vaccine developments, as well as basic biological research studies. However, recombinant protein production is the basic challenge for ongoing medical applications and basic research studies. Thus, the protein expression system, as an interesting and fast-growing research area in biotechnology, might be an attractive tool to solve this challenge.
The Special Issue “State of the Art of Protein Expression System” covers original research papers or reviews on protein expression systems, e.g., Escherichia coli, Bacillus subtilis, Lactococcus lactis, yeast, insect cells, mammalian cells, animal, as well as plants.
This Special Issue aims to focus on recent progresses and advances in vectors design, secretion signals, recombinant protein purifications, oligomeric protein expression, virus-like particle production and subunit vaccines production.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
- vector designs for protein expression system;
- investigations on signal peptide for recombinant proteins production;
- downstream process of recombinant proteins;
- development of oligomeric recombinant expression vectors;
- virus like particle production and preparations;
- subunit vaccines production and preparations.

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. Processes 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 2400 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.
