Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Ion channels are pore-forming membrane proteins that allow ions to pass through the channel pore, presenting in the membranes of all cells. The predecessors focused their attention on establishing a resting membrane potential, shaping action potentials and other electrical signals by gating the flow of ions across the cell membrane, controlling the flow of ions across secretory and epithelial cells, and regulating cell volume. In recent years, the discoveries of the role of ion channels have uncovered their critical role in vascular disease and other human diseases.
This Special Issue will provide the latest progress in, and current understanding of, the contribution of ion channels in multiple aspects of human diseases, especially vascular disease. The scope of this Special Issue will be dedicated to the impact of ion channels and transporters in diseases, including but not limited to cell biology, pharmacology, pharmacogenetics, drug resistance, treatment efficacy and toxicity, drug development, cell microenvironment, the targeting of ion channels, and disease resistance to therapy. We warmly welcome submissions, including original research papers and reviews, on these widely discussed topics.

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.
