International Journal of Molecular Sciences Events
28–31 August 2018 AHR 2018 Symposium
The AHR 2018 Symposium, which is being held for the first time in Paris, will bring together world-renowned scientists in integrated program to share/discuss the latest knowledge on the role of the aromatic hydrocarbon receptor (AHR) in a wide rage of fields. AHR, recognized as a transcription factor activated by many pollutants, responsible for the induction of xenobiotic metabolism enzymes, detects many anthropogenic ligands for some carcinogens or endocrine disrupters. More recently, other functions of this fascinating protein have been described (immune responses, hormonal signaling, cell cycle progression, oxidative stress, inflammation, differentiation, development, apoptosis) as well as new ligands (including endogenous ones) That some of the toxic effects described for environmental molecules could result from endogenous perturbation.
The International Journal of Molecular Sciences – IJMS (ISSN 1422-0067), is currently running a Special Issue entitled "Aryl Hydrocarbon Receptor in Biology and Toxicology", edited by the organization committee member Prof. Dr. Charlotte Esser (IUF, Düsseldorf, Germany). We invite you to contribute a full research paper or review article for peer-review and possible publication in this Special Issue. In case you are interested to publish your work and/or the work presented at this meeting in the special issue, please refer to the following web page for further information: https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijms/special_issues/AHR.
The deadline for submission is on 31 October 2018.
