Closure notice

We are no longer accepting submissions to this journal as we have now merged in scope with newly re-launched BMC Molecular and Cell Biology

Featured article: Immunoglobulin T from sea bass

Immunoglobulins (Igs) are fundamental components of the adaptive immune system of vertebrates, with the IgT/IgZ isotype specific of Teleosts. In this paper, Francesco Buonocore and his colleagues describe the identification of an IgT heavy chain from the European sea bass, its molecular characterization and tissue mRNA localization by in situ hybridization.

Featured article: Human eIF4E isoforms to processing bodies and stress granules

In this paper, Klara Frydryskova and her colleagues compared all three human eukaryotic translation initiation factors 4E (eIF4E) isoforms and their protein variants and describes the spectrum of roles attributed to the eIF4E family.


Aims and scope

BMC Molecular Biology is an open access journal publishing original peer-reviewed research articles in all aspects of DNA and RNA in a cellular context, encompassing investigations of chromatin, replication, recombination, mutation, repair, transcription, translation and RNA processing and function.
