Special Issue "Molecular Mechanisms and Biological Roles of Alternative Autophagy"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 January 2024 | Viewed by 1226
Over the past two decades, studies on canonical autophagy have expanded from molecular mechanisms to human diseases. However, recent studies have revealed the existence of another type of autophagy mechanism, namely alternative autophagy or Golgi-membrane-associated degradation (GOMED). Alternative autophagy is different from canonical autophagy in terms of the molecules involved, membrane sources, and substrates degraded. Therefore, alternative autophagy is a different proteolysis mechanism from canonical autophagy, and importantly, it is shown to be involved in a wide variety of physiological events.
This Special Issue will focus on molecular mechanisms of alternative autophagy, how to monitor alternative autophagy, which molecules are degraded, the physiological roles, and related human diseases.

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.
