This Biointerphases Special Topic Collection will feature recent advances in experimental and computational methods to determine the molecular level structure of proteins at surfaces and interfaces. Following a previous collection on the topic in 2017, the current collection will include articles highlighting recent breakthroughs and reviews summarizing ongoing developments in the field.
Authors are encouraged to use the Biointerphases article template. During submission, you will have an opportunity to tell us that your paper is a part fo one of the collections by choosing the Special Topic Collection “Protein Structure at Interfaces”.
Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
- The interaction of peptides and proteins with biological and biomaterials interfaces
- The role of water, ions and hydration for protein folding, activity and aggregation at biomaterial and membrane surfaces
- Folding and refolding of protein at interfaces
- The molecular mechanisms leading to protein repelling and non-fouling surfaces
- The impact of nanoparticle surfaces and nano materials on protein interfacial structure
- Control and biogenesis of biological membranes, methods for membrane protein analysis
- Protein driven biomineralization and interactions of proteins with hard tissue
- The interaction of proteins with their hydration shell, ice nucleating proteins and antifreeze proteins
