Special Issue "MicroRNA and Non-coding RNA"
A special issue of Cells (ISSN 2073-4409).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 January 2020.
The canonical functions of miRNAs are known to bind to mRNA and suppress translation. However, more functions of miRNAs, other than binding to mRNAs, are beginning to be reported. One example is that there are many non-coding RNAs, lncRNA and circRNA, that can interact with miRNAs. For example, some ncRNA can act as a miRNA sponge to absorb miRNAs and suppress the functionality of miRNAs. Any studies that focus on the interaction between miRNA and non-coding RNAs are welcomed.

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.
