Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Life forms on the planet are exposed to different forms of radiation be it emitted from the sun as X-rays, radio waves, visible, ultraviolet or infrared light, or from natural sources such as α-, β- or γ-radiation.  Concern has also been raised about the effects of exposure to microwaves, naturally occurring radioactivity, and heat (thermal radiation) has on individuals.  The mechanisms by which these forms of radiation affect cell function differ considerably, but high levels of exposure can result in cell death, and long-term exposure is known to cause cancers in people.  This issue will look at the cytotoxic effects of radiation.   While emphasis will be placed on modes of cell death, studies on DNA damage, intracellular signalling pathways, caspase activation, membrane damage, production of ROS, gene activation, organelle dysfunction are also encouraged.  Reviews of the mechanisms involved in the cytotoxic effects of electromagnetic radiation are welcomed, as well as studies on the effect of long-term exposure to these forms of radiation on humans.  I encourage you to submit a manuscript to this issue and help shed further “light” on the lethal effects that radiation has on cells and individuals.

Submission

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences 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 1600 CHF.
