Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Autophagy and apoptosis are two essential processes that play critical roles in regulating cellular homeostasis. Recent research has revealed that there is a dynamic interplay between these two processes, and they work synergistically to maintain cellular homeostasis under various conditions, including states of stress and infection. Dysregulation of autophagy and apoptosis has been linked to various human diseases, such as cancer, neurodegeneration, and metabolic disorders.

This Special Issue welcomes high-quality research and review articles covering the molecular mechanisms, functional implications, and therapeutic potential of autophagy and apoptosis synergy in cellular homeostasis. By bringing together a collection of papers on this topic, we aim to facilitate a discussion among authors and readers to share the latest research findings, develop new ideas, and explore new research directions in this exciting field.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Cells is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
