In all living organisms, extracellular signals are translated through signal transduction processes into specific responses. Research with fungal experimental systems has substantially uncovered the components participating in these processes, such as kinases, phosphatases, receptors, and second messengers. Different signal transduction pathways interact at various cellular levels and form networks that allow for the integration of multiple signals for coordinated cellular responses. Such responses include changes in the transcription of genes, the translation and modification of RNAs, and post-translational and conformational changes in proteins. Most importantly, these processes are dependent on their cellular locations. These molecular events trigger a variety of fungal cellular reactions and developmental processes, including DNA damage response, cell cycle arrest and progression, pathogenicity and symbiotic interactions, asexual and sexual morphogenesis, primary and secondary metabolism, stress adaptation, autophagy, and apoptosis.Prof. Dr. Ulrich Kück
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. Journal of Fungi is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
