Since the discovery of the ubiquitin proteasome pathway in the late 1970’s, tremendous progress has been accomplished in understanding its mechanism, and revealing its conserved nature across the different eukaryotic kingdoms. The pathway functions as one of the major regulatory switches in the cell and affects a broad range of processes such as cell division, transcriptional activity, stress responses and transport processes. Although the pathway is often mainly connected with degradation of ubiquitylated proteins, it also has major impact in controlling activity and subcellular localization of proteins, independently of proteolysis.
This Special Issue will provide an Open Access opportunity to publish research work and review articles related to the ubiquitin proteasome pathway, and to offer comprehensive new insights into current developments of this exciting and important research field.

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Cells is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly 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 500 CHF (Swiss Francs). English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
