Aims and Scope

The Enzymology section of the journal Current Chinese Science publishes original research articles, letters, reviews/mini-reviews and guest-edited thematic issues on various topics related to enzymology. The articles included may be largely, but not exclusively, focused on contributions from China.

This section is not limited to a specific aspect of the field but is instead devoted to a wide range of subfields in the area. Articles of interdisciplinary nature are particularly welcome. Submissions in the following areas related to enzymology are of special interest to the readers of this journal:

  • • Biochemical- or biophysical-based assays
  • • Catalytic features and mechanisms
  • • Directed evolution of enzymes
  • • Enzyme expression profile
  • • Enzyme identification
  • • Enzyme immobilization strategies
  • • Enzyme ligands (Inhibitors, Inducers, Activators, Degraders)
  • • Enzyme products
  • • Enzyme properties
  • • Enzyme recombinant expression
  • • Enzyme single nucleotide polymorphism
  • • Enzyme species variation
  • • Enzyme subcellular localization,
  • • Enzyme substrates and metabolites
  • • Enzyme-based biosensors
  • • Enzyme-based biosynthesis
  • • Enzyme-related databases
  • • Enzyme-related diseases
  • • Enzyme-related techniques (Fermentation, Expression & purification, Enzyme mutation)
  • • Imaging of target enzyme in complex biological systems
  • • Physiological functions
  • • Relating signal pathways
  • • Structural and biochemical properties
  • • Others
