Keep an eye out for the JBC minireview compendium
At the end of each year, the Journal of Biological Chemistry
editors put together a compendium of minireviews. Now the compendium will be
entirely digital, which will allow readers to quickly navigate to reviews most
relevant to them. Visit www.jbc.org next month
to see the compendium.
JBC unveils Overleaf templateThe ASBMB, publisher of The Journal of Biological Chemistry, has partnered with Overleaf, the free, collaborative cloud-based writing and reviewing tool, to make the submission process simpler for JBC authors. JBC Thematic Minireview Series - Molecular Basis of Selection of Metals by Enzymes
July 26, 2016 — This ninth Metals in Biology Thematic Series deals with the fundamental issue of why certain enzymes prefer individual metals. Why do some prefer sodium and some potassium? Is it just the size? Why does calcium have so many regulatory functions? Why do some proteins have an affinity for zinc? How is the homeostasis of calcium and zinc achieved? How do enzymes discriminate between the similar metals magnesium and manganese? Four Minireviews address these and related questions about metal ion preferences in biological systems.
