Special Issue in International Journal of Molecular Sciences: Regulatory Mechanism of Transcription Factors in Plant Morphology and Function
A plant forms various organs of flowers, leaves, and roots with highly different morphology. The morphogenesis is genetically programmed to function for the plant survival and can be changeable for the biotechnological application. For the morphogenesis, transcription factors temporally and spatially activate or repress the transcription of their target genes, and consequently regulate activities of proteins, hormones, and other metabolites. The importance of transcription factors in the morphogenesis is obvious, but only partial view of their roles has been obtained.
To update our understanding of the morphogenesis, this Special Issue will focus on the regulation of transcription factors in plant morphology and function. It will provide important insights in the transcription factors that regulate a gene-regulatory cascade operating for the morphogenesis. It will further emphasize the perspective views how the regulation of transcription factors in the morphogenesis contributes to functions for the plant survival. However, it will exclude reports without detailed molecular mechanisms of the morphogenesis nor in planta functions of transcription factors.

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.
