Special Issue in International Journal of Molecular Sciences: Phytohormones: Important Participators in Plant Growth and Development 2.0
Phytohormones are involved in the regulation of numerous processes in plants. However, their participation in the control of plant growth and development has attracted the most attention. Recently, wonderful discoveries have been made regarding the mechanisms of hormonal synthesis, perception of hormonal signals, and participants involved in transduction and implementation of their signals at the levels of gene expression and hormonal crosstalk with other regulatory systems. Nevertheless, a lot of questions concerning the participation of plant hormones in the control of growth and development remain unanswered. Therefore, we invite researchers to contribute to this Special Issue, which will present the latest research findings reported in original experimental papers, opinions, and reviews regarding hormonal control of growth and development on the cell and organ levels during germination, cell division, extension and differentiation, root and shoot branching, flowering, and fruit ripening. The list of regulators called phytohormones was expanded by adding brassinosteroids, jasmonates, and salicylic acid to “classical” hormones: auxins, cytokinins, gibberellins, ethylene, and abscisic acid. Although jasmonates and salicylic acid are better known as “stress hormones”, there are reports on their capacity to influence plants’ growth, and publications on this topic are welcome.

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.
