Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Calcium is considered “a signal for life and death”, and the tightly regulated spatiotemporal dynamics of calcium ions are essential for the proper function of mammalian cells and tissues; these range from short-term responses such as synaptic transmission, the heartbeat, and muscle contraction to long-term biological events including gene expression, cell migration, the immune response, and development. Imbalanced calcium hemostasis may lead to pathological conditions and even diseases, including neurological disorders, immunodeficiencies, cancer, cardiac arrhythmia, hypertension, and stroke. This Special Issue, “Advances in Dissecting Calcium Signaling Pathways in Health and Diseases”, welcomes original findings or reviews covering calcium-related molecular tools, the dissection of calcium signaling pathways, the interrogation of calcium-modulated cellular functions, and diseases arising from aberrant calcium signaling. We encourage leading investigators across all disciplines to share their latest work on developments in calcium signaling-related topics.

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.
