Special Issue "Regulatory microRNA"
A special issue of Cells (ISSN 2073-4409).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2018
MicroRNAs (miRNAs), short non-coding RNAs, have been shown to be involved in the pathogenesis of many human disorders, ranging from cancers to autoimmune diseases. However, the role of microRNA in its detailed mechanisms about the initiation and progression of these diseases is still quite uncharacterized. Therefore, researches describe their mechanisms of actions, expression patterns and cellular pathways are especially important. This Special Issue seeks reviews and original papers covering a wide range of topics related to microRNA biology, such as miRNA therapeutics, miRNA regulation in various disorders (cancer, metabolism, autoimmunity or others), function of interactions between microRNAs and target genes, pathway analysis, and other related interesting topics.

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 1000 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.
