Special Issue in International Journal of Molecular Sciences: Regulatory Mechanism and Network of Abiotic Stress-Response in Plants 2.0
Various abiotic stresses, such as high salinity, drought, extreme temperature, and excessive light limit growth, development, and productivity in plants. Plants show dynamic responses to adapt to those abiotic stresses at the biochemical, physiological, and molecular levels, thus enabling them to survive under variable abiotic stress conditions.
Adaptation to abiotic stresses requires coordinated modulations in plant metabolism, cell growth, division, and differentiation, all of which are dependent on gene regulation systems that are controlled by complex mechanisms. Many stress-responsive genes have been shown to participate in the regulation of abiotic stress responses in plants. However, precise regulatory mechanisms and networks of abiotic stress responses still remain to be understood.
This Special Issue will focus on the most recent advances in the regulatory mechanism and network of abiotic stress response in plants. The submission of work reporting molecular mechanisms in abiotic stress signal transduction is especially encouraged. Notwithstanding, contributions on other related topics aimed at understanding the regulatory mechanisms of abiotic stress response in plants are also welcomed, including reviews and original research articles.

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.
