Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Metabolic Pathways in Cancer Cells delves into the intricate relationship between cellular metabolism and cancer development, presenting a comprehensive exploration of the diverse metabolic alterations that occur in cancer cells. This Special Issue summarizes cutting-edge research, clarifying the key role of reprogramming metabolism in tumor cells, oncogenesis, tumor progression, and therapeutic resistance. Contributions include various aspects, including dysregulated glucose metabolism, aberrant lipid metabolism, and altered amino acid utilization, shedding light on the molecular mechanisms driving these metabolic changes. Furthermore, this Special Issue aims to explore the interplay between oncogenesis, signaling pathways, and metabolic adaptations, providing valuable insights into potential therapeutic targets. By promoting a deeper understanding of cancer metabolism, this Special Issue aims to catalyze the development of new diagnostic tools and therapeutic strategies to counteract cancer progression and improve patient outcomes.

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.
