Current Protein & Peptide Science

ISSN: 1389-2037 (Print)
eISSN: 1875-5550 (Online)

Current Protein & Peptide Science publishes research articles and full-length/mini review articles on specific aspects involving proteins, peptides, and interactions between the enzymes, the binding interactions of hormones and their receptors; the properties of transcription factors and other molecules that regulate gene expression; the reactions leading to the immune response; the process of signal transduction; the structure and function of proteins involved in the cytoskeleton and molecular motors; the properties of membrane channels and transporters; and the generation and storage of metabolic energy. In addition, reviews of experimental studies of protein folding and design are given special emphasis. Manuscripts submitted to Current Protein and Peptide Science should cover a field by discussing research from the leading laboratories in a field and should pose questions for future studies.

Artificial Intelligence for Protein Research

Protein research, essential for understanding biological processes and creating therapeutics, faces challenges due to the intricate nature of protein structures and functions. Traditional methods are limited in exploring the vast protein sequence space efficiently. Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) offer promising solutions by improving predictions and speeding up protein discovery and design. By integrating AI and ML into protein research, advancements can be made in predicting structures, designing tailored proteins, and optimizing production... see more

Nutrition and Metabolism in Musculoskeletal Diseases

The musculoskeletal system consists mainly of cartilage, bone, muscles, tendons, connective tissue and ligaments. Balanced metabolism is of vital importance for the homeostasis of the musculoskeletal system. A series of musculoskeletal diseases (for example, sarcopenia, osteoporosis) are resulted from the dysregulated metabolism of the musculoskeletal system. Furthermore, metabolic diseases (such as diabetes, obesity) are prevalent and connected with the changes in the musculoskeletal system. More research are called for to expand our knowledge on the... see more

Protein Folding, Aggregation and Liquid-Liquid Phase Separation

Protein folding, misfolding and aggregation remain one of the main problems of interdisciplinary science not only because many questions are still open, but also because they are important from the point of view of practical application. Protein aggregation and formation of fibrillar structures, for example, is a hallmark of a large group of neurodegenerative human diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease, type 2 diabetes, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and Parkinson’s disease among many others. Thanks to RNA vaccines... see more
