Topical Collection Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Topical Collection entitled “Feature Papers in Organelle Function” aims to collect high-quality research articles, communications, and review articles in the key field of organelle function. Since the aim of this Topical Collection is to illustrate frontier research in organelle function through selected works, we encourage Editorial Board Members of Cells to contribute papers reflecting the latest progress in their research field, or relevant experts and colleagues to do so. Please kindly note that all invited papers will be published online free of charge once accepted.

We welcome the submission of manuscripts that deal with specific aspects of organelle physiology or that help deciphering how subcellular structures are maintained in the face of membrane flow and how individual organelles send and receive specific information to maintain intracellular homeostasis.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • cell membrane
  • cell wall
  • centrioles
  • chloroplasts
  • cytoplasm
  • cytoskeleton
  • endoplasmic reticulum
  • Golgi apparatus
  • intracellular vesicles
  • lysosomes
  • microfilaments
  • microtubules
  • mitochondria
  • nuclei
  • nucleoli
  • peroxisomes
  • ribosomes
  • vacuoles
