Special Issue "Mitochondria as a Core of Cell Signals"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 January 2024 | Viewed by 3791
Mitochondria are highly dynamic organelles that serve as a metabolic core wherein catabolic pathways converge upon fuel cells and building blocks for the synthesis of essential cell components. A plethora of regulatory and signalling pathways govern the dynamics and functionality of this organelle and the biochemical routes within. Conversely, many mitochondrial components participate in the control of cell homeostasis and fate. Reactive oxygen species and lipid peroxidation products function as powerful signalling molecules. Cytochrome c and other proapoptotic factors can activate cell death. Mitochondrial DNA mediates inflammatory responses. Further, tricarboxylic acid cycle metabolites released from mitochondria play a broad variety of nonmetabolic roles.
In this collection, we will present an updated view of the role of mitochondria as a core for signalling routes involved in distinct pathological processes including cancer, neurodegenerative syndromes, and diseases. How accumulated knowledge on these processes is aiding the creation of novel therapeutic approaches will be also discussed.

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.
