Feature papers represent the most advanced research with significant potential for high impact in the field. A Feature Paper should be a substantial original Article that involves several techniques or approaches, provides an outlook for future research directions and describes possible research applications.
Feature papers are submitted upon individual invitation or recommendation by the scientific editors and must receive positive feedback from the reviewers.
Editor’s Choice articles are based on recommendations by the scientific editors of MDPI journals from around the world. Editors select a small number of articles recently published in the journal that they believe will be particularly interesting to readers, or important in the respective research area. The aim is to provide a snapshot of some of the most exciting work published in the various research areas of the journal.
On 15 June 2023, MDPI and Cells (ISSN: 2073-4409) organized a webinar on cells, titled Systems Biology of Apoptotic and Non-apoptotic Signaling. The webinar focused on contemporary views on the intricate crosstalk of apoptotic and non-apoptotic networks in cell-regulating life/death decisions.
Life/death decisions in a cell are regulated by the balance between apoptotic and non-apoptotic signaling pathways. Although these pathways have been studied relatively well, their quantitative regulation has, until recently, been poorly understood. In this regard, the construction of mathematical models of apoptotic and non-apoptotic signaling pathways led to enormous progress in the quantitative understanding of cell fate control. Prof. Dr. Inna Lavrik first dissected the quantitative regulation of cell fate decisions in death receptor networks. Then, Prof. Boris Zhivotovsky showed us programmed cell death in the past, present, and future. Finally, Prof. Olga Lavrik presented poly(ADP-ribose)polymerases as dynamic triggers for biomolecular condensate formation. The three scholars comprehensively discussed the contemporary view on the intricate crosstalk of apoptotic and non-apoptotic networks in the cell regulating life/death decisions.
Please note that this webinar is associated with a Special Issue in Cells, “Systems Biology of Apoptotic and Non-apoptotic Signaling”. The deadline is 30 September 2023.
