Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body, with the vast majority of it being stored in bone. Maintaining adequate magnesium levels is key to health. In this regard, hypomagnesemia has been related to diseases such as osteoporosis or cardiovascular diseases and has also been associated with mortality. At the molecular level, magnesium is capable of modulating membrane receptors such as the transient receptor potential melastatin-subfamily member 7 (TRPM7) or the calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR), regulating signaling pathways involved in many cellular functions such as cell differentiation, proliferation, inflammation, etc.
The aim of this Special Issue is to compile the latest scientific advances on the role of magnesium homeostasis in disease, such as kidney disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, genetic diseases, cardiovascular disease, and cancer, among others. In addition, the role of magnesium in the control of cellular processes such as oxidative stress or inflammation will also be discussed.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
