We are happy to announce this Special Issue of Microorganisms on "The role of Heat Shock Proteins in Diseases and Their Therapeutic Potential: Environmental stress and Microorganisms”. Microorganisms (ISSN: 2076-2607, IF 4.926) is an international, peer-reviewed open access journal related to prokaryotic and eukaryotic microorganisms, viruses, as well as prions.
Heat shock proteins (HSPs), a family of highly conserved proteins that that bind and help fold nascent or denatured polypeptides, ubiquitously exist in organisms (from bacteria to mammals). HSPs, also known as stress proteins, can change in case of disease occurrence and in the presence of environmental stressors such as microorganisms. Recent reports indicated that microorganisms played important role in the mechanism of biological injury induced by environmental stress.
In this Special Issue, our aim is to provide an in-depth view of "The Role of Heat Shock Proteins in Diseases and Their Therapeutic Potential: Environmental Stress including Biological Stress and Abiotic Stress and Microorganisms”. We welcome high-quality original research and review articles focusing on (but not limited to) the following subtopics:
- Heat Shock Proteins
- Environmental stress
- Molecular mechanism
- Environmental stress

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. Microorganisms 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 2700 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.
