Marine natural products, as the bioactive products of secondary metabolites, including enzymes, lipids, and heteropolysaccharides, have played a crucial role in the discovery of novel lead compounds. The characteristics of abundant water, high salinity, high pressure, low temperature, flow, and complexity in the marine environment make the structural configurations of marine natural products more diverse, unique, and novel. Marine natural products possess unique regulatory mechanisms for combating different diseases, including apoptosis, autophagy, the Hippo signaling pathway, Jak STAT and the mTOR signaling pathway.
This Special Issue mainly focuses on the relationship between various natural products derived from marine sources and disease-related signaling pathways. It encourages the contribution of studies addressing new pathways for known components, or the study of pathways for the disocvery of novel molecules. Research articles and reviews that combine the above conditions are welcome for submission.

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. Marine Drugs 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 2900 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.
