Nuclear receptors are a class of proteins classified as transcription factors that regulate the expression of specific genes, including those involving critical biological functions such as development, homeostasis, and metabolism, via binding of their cognate ligands. Nearly 50 nuclear receptor family members encoded in the human/mouse/rat genome have been identified. Recently, a large body of evidence has emerged suggesting that nuclear receptors play an important role in pathological conditions such as the development and progression of neoplasms. However, exact functions of nuclear receptors remain far from being fully understood. The aim of this Special Issue is to provide an overview of previous and novel findings indicating the functional role of nuclear receptors in physiological conditions as well as a variety of disorders. Original research or review articles on signaling related to any nuclear receptors are most welcome.

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 papers will be 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. Cells 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 1800 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.
