Since the discovery of its oxidizing environment, much attention has been dedicated to understanding the redox-dependent processes taking place in the ER. In spite of this, the mechanisms of redox regulation are still not entirely elucidated, and the functions have been characterized for only a handful of the about 20 oxidoreductases involved in disulfide oxidation, reduction and isomerization during protein folding in the ER. Recently identified functions include regulation of ER folding and quality control machineries. This Special Issue seeks reviews and original papers covering a wide range of topics related to redox-dependent ER processes, such as redox dynamics and maintenance, and thioredoxin-like protein involvement in protein folding and other mechanisms in the ER.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 semimonthly 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 2200 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.
