Water is essential for life. The discovery of water channels, also called aquaporins, provided the molecular explanation for the existence of facilitated passive transmembrane water transport. Aquaporins are characterized by a highly conserved structure, especially in the vicinity of the water pore. Aquaporins are present in all living organisms, including vertebrates, invertebrates, microorganisms and plants, and are involved in many living processes, and in diseases. This Special Issue of the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, “Aquaporins: Water Channels Essential Transmembrane Proteins for Living Organisms 3.0” will focus on the function of aquaporins across all living organisms, including their potential utility in medicine. Authors are invited to submit their contributions that will meet the focus of this Special Issue.

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.
