Apoptosis is an active process of genetically controlled self-destruction, which controls cell homeostasis, tissue morphogenesis or the development and functioning of the immune system. The regulation of apoptosis at several levels is essential to maintain the delicate balance between cellular survival and death signalling that is required to prevent disease. Despite important theoretical advances, little progress has been made in the treatment or prevention of diseases associated with the disruption of cell death (such as cancers, neurodegenerative and autoimmune syndromes or viral infections). This Special Issue will discuss the recent advances in the field, thereby contributing to our knowledge on how the selective inclusion or exclusion of key signalling pathways play a role in signal transduction, apoptosis, disease and many other cellular events.

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.
