Plants as sessile organisms are not able to move and must respond to adverse environmental conditions/stress, such as high salinity, heat, cold, drought, oxidative stress, and pathogen attack. Signal transduction is a complex network of interactions in which signal elements (physical and chemical) are transmitted through the plant cell to respond to environmental stimuli. Receptors, protein kinases, transcription factors, intracellular calcium, ROS, and hormones are the main components of the signal transduction pathway that regulate or stimulate other cell signal components.
This Special Issue explores the role of signaling components in model plants, such as Antirrhinum, Arabidopsis thaliana, Lotus japonicas, Medicago truncatula, rice, tobacco, and Zea mays, which have led to adaptation and resistance against abiotic and biotic stresses, including but not limited to functional analysis of key genes, hormone contents, signal transduction networks, gene expression profiling, and post-translation modifications.

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.
