Special Issue "Molecular Research on Mitochondrial Dysfunction"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2021).
Interests: mitochondria; complexomic analysis; crisate remodelling; nucleoid dynamics; mitochondrial disease
It is becoming increasingly clear and widely accepted that mitochondria play a central role in human pathology, not only in relation to primary OxPhos defects but also in a wide range of diseases, including neurodegenerative and immunological disorders. However, how central homeostatic and signalling pathways, such as mitophagy, fusion–fission, and mtDNA heteroplasmy levels, impact on the onset and progression of these diseases has only recently started to emerge. Thus, this is an exciting and thrilling new subject of investigation. Contributions to this Special Issue will provide a general overview and critical insight on our current understanding of these aspects. Our hope is to open a forum where the molecular mechanisms and pathophysiological consequences of mitochondrial dysfunction will be debated with the final aim of increassing our understanding of this emerging and exciting branch of mitochondrial biology and pathophysiology.

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. 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.
