Signal transduction processes are of vital importance for the cell as they regulate a plethora of cellular processes, including growth, differentiation, and cell death. The importance of cellular signaling is highlighted by the fact that signaling errors, e.g., after a mutation of endogenous genes or upon impaired stimuli, are the reason for numerous human diseases. However, although signaling cascades are frequently depicted as linear “flow-charts”, the cellular reality is much more complicated, and the signaling pathways frequently crosstalk and interact. Thus, understanding the fine-tuning of signaling, and the networks of signaling molecules, will be a major task in the future. In this Special Issue, we are interested in manuscripts (e.g., reviews or original articles) that address various aspects of this important topic. We especially welcome manuscripts that focus on aberrant signaling, such as oncogenic signal transduction and networks, or crosstalk between signaling pathways. However, manuscripts about signaling in normal cells are also highly appreciated. We hope that this important topic will attract a large number of contributions from both basic and clinical scientists.

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.
