Special Issue in Cells: Molecular and Cellular Mechanisms of Stress Responses
As sessile organisms plants face many challenges to cope with daily and seasonal environmental changes. Proper coordination of developmental and physiological processes in response to sudden or long-term changes at their growing site is crucial. A key to guarantee that plants not only survive under environmental stresses, but also thrive and reproduce, is proper protein quality control and regulation, such as molecular chaperones and proteases. These systems verify the current functional status, proper folding, post-translational processing, and ensure degradation and recycling of proteins throughout organisms. This special topic is calling for primary research articles or reviews that focus on current novel developments and applications that highlight these protein controlling systems and their impact for plant survival under environmental stresses.

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.
