Aims and scope
Probiotics and Antimicrobial Proteins publishes reviews, original articles, letters (short notes) and technical (methodological) communications targeted towards the advancement of the fundamental knowledge and exploration of the applications of probiotics, natural antimicrobial proteins and their derivatives in biomedical, agricultural, veterinary, food, and cosmetic products. The Journal equally welcomes fundamental research articles and reports on applications of these microorganisms and substances. The Journal encourages structural studies and studies that correlate the structure and functional properties of antimicrobial proteins.
Authors are expected to submit manuscripts dealing with all aspects of probiotics and antimicrobial peptides, from their discovery and understanding mechanisms of action to biophysical experiments/simulations that clarify mechanisms of action on molecular level, testing pharmacological profiles (activity and toxicity) and design of novel antimicrobial proteins and/or probiotic-containing or probiotic-derived products with therapeutic, food or consumer health formulation potential.
