Polyamines are N-containing essential compounds in all living organisms. Their metabolism is highly connected to other significant signal pathways, hormones and metabolites, making them hub molecules. Despite an enormous effort to study polyamine-mediated signal pathways and metabolic interactions, there is a lack of knowledge about the precise molecular modes of action of polyamine biosynthesis, degradation and transport mechanisms. New emerging evidence about the significance of polyamines is not only in development but also stress-induced responses support the aim of this Special Issue to deepen our knowledge of PA-related interactions. It is an urgent need to decipher these mechanisms not only in single organisms but also in more complex interactions between, for example, plants and microbes, or between microbes and the human body. This Special Issue invites contributors to publish their important work to describe new modes of action, polyamines-related metabolic modifications or molecular responses supporting the role of polyamines as growth regulators and hub molecules.

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.
