Circadian rhythm is dominantly regulated by clock genes. Recent evidence suggests that the clock genes CLOCK, BMAL1/2, DEC1/2, PER1/2/3, and CRY1/2 play important roles in tumor progression, metabolism, immune responses, and sleep disorders by regulating apoptosis-related factors, cell cycle regulators, and inflammatory factors. On the other hand, various kinds of stress, such as hypoxia, inflammation, and anti-tumor drugs, affect the expression of clock genes. Therefore, clock genes have multiple functions in vivo that are associated with various kinds of diseases. Our aim is to improve the understanding of crosstalk between circadian rhythms, clock genes, and diseases to allow the development of strategies to overcome diseases, involving clock gene abnormalities. We encourage the submission of original articles and reviews involving circadian rhythm/clock genes and diseases.
Topics include, but are not limited to the following:
- Relevant circadian rhythm/clock genes and diseases
- Molecular pathways of clock genes, involving tumor progression, metabolism, inflammation, etc.
- Functional analyses of clock genes in mouse models

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.
