Call for Papers: Iron in Biology

You are invited to contribute to the upcoming Metallomics themed issue titled “Iron in Biology“.

Guest Edited by Professor Robert Hider and Dr Vincenzo Abbate (Kings College London), this themed issue will highlight the latest high-impact research in iron in biology and its role in agriculture, health and disease.

We welcome submissions demonstrating mechanistic insight into all aspects of iron in biology to include iron uptake in microorganisms, plants and parasites, iron deficiency or overload, and iron chelation therapy. We also encourage studies on the role of haem and haemoproteins, iron homeostasis, iron transport and storage proteins, and Fe-S clusters.

Themed issue on Mammalian Copper Transport and Related Disorders now published

The new themed issue for Metallomics titled “Mammalian Copper Transport and Related Disorders” is now published.

This themed issue, Guest Edited by Professors David Giedroc, Sharon La Fontaine and Richard Burke, marks the retirement of three pioneers in mammalian copper biology, Professors Jim Camakaris, Julian Mercer and Joseph Prohaska.

This issue showcases research on the role of copper in health and disease, the chemistry and structural biology of key copper homeostasis proteins, the development of cutting edge imaging tools and therapies, and the model systems that have helped elucidate the function and regulation of this intriguing and exciting metal in the context of mammalian copper homeostasis.

You can read the issue editorial by the Guest Editors here as well as special editorials by Joseph Prohaska, Julian Mercer and James Camakaris.

Managing Editor, Guy Jones, and Editorial Board chair and Guest Editor of the themed issue, David Giedroc, attended the 10th International Copper Meeting on September 25 – 30, 2016 in Sorrento, Italy and were very pleased to be able to meet with many contributors to the issue as well as Jim, Julian and Joe.

Expanded Nickel in Biology online collection now available

The Nickel in Biology online collection has now been expanded to include additional reports in this field which highlight emerging high-impact research on the roles and distribution of nickel in biology.

Curated by Editorial Board member Professor Deborah Zamble, the hope is that the collection will become a resource for researchers in the field and new articles will be added to this collection as they are published in Metallomics.

A link to the collection can be found here.

Do you work in this area? Then why not submit to Metallomics today!

Call for papers: Imaging Metals in Biology

You are invited to contribute to the upcoming Metallomics themed issue titled “Imaging Metals in Biology“.

Guest Edited by Dr Dominic Hare (University of Technology Sydney, Australia), Dr Gawain McColl (Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health, Australia) and Dr Elizabeth New (The University of Sydney, Australia) this upcoming themed issue will showcase the current state-of-play in metal imaging by presenting applications that provide new understanding of how metals regulate normal biochemistry and how this critical balance is lost during disease.

Imaging metals in biological systems has evolved beyond method development to applications which are relevant to fundamental cell biology and making significant contributions to health and disease research. Showcasing these cutting-edge approaches and insights will provide the basis for new studies into the metallome and the effects metals ions have on organisms on other omic-level phenotypes including the proteome and metabolome.

For your article to be considered for this themed issue we must receive your manuscript by October 2nd 2016.

Communications, Full Papers and Review articles are welcomed, if you are interested in submitting an article please contact us to let us know.

Deadline Extended for Lead, Manganese and Mercury Neurochemistry Themed Issue

Our upcoming Themed Issue in Metallomics will aim to showcase the latest discoveries and developments in Lead, Manganese and Mercury Neurochemistry.

For your article to be considered for the themed issue, we must receive your manuscript by the new deadline of 31st January 2016.

Guest Edited by Professor Rachel Austin, Jennifer Freeman and Tomas Guilarte, this upcoming themed issue will focus on making visible the molecular mechanisms by which Lead, Manganese and Mercury impact on the central nervous system.

This issue will highlight the connected chemical and biochemical interactions that occur as these metal ions enter the central nervous system and ultimately cause pathologies. Omics-based approaches offer tremendous potential to see connections between metal ions and key biomolecules but any article that offers insight into the neurochemistry of these ions will be welcomed. Given the state of the field, it is anticipated that many articles will include sections that highlight gaps in our knowledge.
