Molecular and Structural Endocrinology publishes significant basic research (original as well as reviews) on molecular and mechanistic aspects of hormone, growth factor and cytokine action and secretion, with special emphasis on the link between structure and function. Examples of relevant topics are:
• Three-dimensional structures of hormones, growth factors and their receptors and binding proteins;
• Mechanisms of receptor binding, activation and signal transduction;
• Quantitative aspects (including systems-level approaches) of receptor activation and signal transduction including kinetics and mathematical modelling;
• Regulation of cellular processes, e.g., the cell cycle and gene expression; membrane trafficking /endocytosis including role of SNARE proteins;
• Mechanisms of signalling specificity and differential signalling;
• Comparative biology and evolutionary aspects of hormones, growth factors and cytokines and their receptors and binding proteins.
The molecular basis of endocrine disease mechanisms is also very relevant, such as:
• Structural aspects of pathological changes to growth factors, their receptors and downstream signalling proteins.
Extension of basic findings to medicinal chemistry and pharmacology is also encouraged.

PMCID: all published articles receive a PMCID
Molecular and Structural Endocrinology welcomes submissions of the following article types: Correction, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review, Systematic Review and Technology and Code.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Molecular and Structural Endocrinology, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Molecular and Structural Endocrinology will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Endocrinology.
