Photosynthesis is inarguably the most important biological processes on earth, and chloroplast is the plant organelle that conducts photosynthesis. However, recent studies have indicated that chloroplasts suffered from stress conditions (e.g. high light, drought, low/high temperature, nutrient limitation, pathogen infection) produce specific signals and regulate the expression of nucleus genes. Meanwhile, stressed chloroplast also elicits post-translational modifications including autophagy, budding or even degradation. Thus, chloroplasts are not only centers of plant metabolism, but also sensors of environmental stresses. This special issue focuses on the role of chloroplast in sensing and transmitting stress signals as well as its responses to environmental stresses.

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.
