Journal of Venomous Animals and Toxins including Tropical Diseases


We thought to let you know that the below thematic series are launching a call for papers. We hope you find these interesting and invite you to submit a manuscript.

Zika and other arboviral diseases – a Call for Papers
Guest editor: Alfonso J. Rodríguez-Morales

Emerging arboviruses – including Zika, Chikungunya – are making headlines around the globe, and WHO has declared a public health emergency of international concern for Zika virus because of its association with microcephaly and Guillain-Barré syndrome. Cases in areas with and without vector-borne transmission are now observed for Zika and other arboviruses. Due to different routes of transmission, autochthonous cases outside the tropics have been reported in Europe and North America, where asymptomatic infected people from Africa, Latin America and Asia are carriers of the infection.
We welcome submissions on the clinical and epidemiological aspects of these emerging arboviral diseases, as well on their diagnostic and therapeutic implications. Click here to find out more.

Hyphenated mass spectrometry strategies as tools for unveiling peptide toxins with potential therapeutic application – a Call for Papers
Guest editors: Daniel Pimenta (Butantan Institute, Brazil) and Philippe Bullet (University Grenoble Alpes, France)

Hyphenated mass spectrometry (MS) strategies have been successfully employed as tools for unveiling peptide toxins and other bioactive peptides, such as proteins from venoms and secretions. The association of genome mining, complementary “omics” and/or bar-coding of complex matrices with structural characterization by MS and pharmacological studies on the structure-activity relationship of such novel molecules provides armamentarium for new therapeutics targets and candidates.
Under this broad thematic umbrella, the series will cover research topics on peptides with functional properties such as antimicrobial, toxic, lytic, vasoactive, anti-proliferative, antiviral, anti-tumoral, immunomodulators and enzyme inhibitors. Click here to find out more.
