Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Identifying causal genes for blood pressure (BP), known as quantitative trait loci (QTLs), allows us to discover the etiology of hypertension pathogenesis well in advance of its underpinning physiology. until now, an increasing number of BP QTLs have been localized in both humans by genome-wide association studies (GWAS) and animal models. Human GWAS have statistically located >900 potential QTLs associated with BP by nucleotide sentinels. They are mostly located in non-coding genome regions and are the results of primate evolution independent of BP control. Future challenges are to qualitatively elevate the outcomes of statistics and the associations of localizing QTLs to establish the physiology and causation of their functions, and to understand the mechanisms of these QTLs determining BP together. Recent molecular breakthroughs have established a principle of one QTL equal to one gene at the level of physiology and in causation. In vivo studies have unified model and human QTLs into a physiological and mechanistic framework that originated from mammalian common ancestors.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
