Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The transport of ions by epithelial cells is essential for a wide range of physiologically important processes, such as acid–base and fluid balance, defense against pathogens, the digestion and absorption of nutrients, efficient sensory transduction, and tissue differentiation as well as repair. Dysfunction in epithelial ion transport underlies many diseases, such as secretory diarrheas, hypertension, COPD, cystic fibrosis, ARDS, pancreatitis, and hydrocephalus, to name just a few. This Special Issue will bring together original research and review articles related to the functional and pathological roles of ion transport in epithelial tissues in health and disease. It will highlight new discoveries, approaches, and technical developments in epithelial research. The main feature of this Special Issue is to highlight emerging new roles played by ion transporters and channels in epithelia, as well as how this information is being harnessed to develop new therapeutic strategies for important human diseases.

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.
