Special Issue "Mitochondria Crosstalks with other Organelles in Pathophysiology"
A special issue of International Journal of Molecular Sciences (ISSN 1422-0067). This special issue belongs to the section "Molecular Pathology, Diagnostics, and Therapeutics".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2017).
For a long time, and despite studies using electron microscopy that allowed the visualisation of physical contacts between organelles, especially between mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum and plasma membrane, many subcellular compartments have been studied as isolated and independent cellular compartments. These days, accompanied by the development of new technologies and super resolution imagery, it is now obvious that physical interactions do exist between many organelles that allow and control many biological processes in eukaryotic cells, such as lipid transfer, calcium transfer, vesicular trafficking, metabolism, cell signalling, cell death, or cell survival. This Special Issue will center on reviews and primary data manuscripts that focus on defining (1) Mitochondria and physical and functional interactions with other organelles; (2) Role of mitochondria and organelle crosstalk in membrane lipid transport and dynamics; (3) Organelle crosstalks with mitochondria and cell signalling; (4) Organelles involved in the regulation of mitochondria biogenesis, degradation and homeostasis; (5) Control of calcium homeostasis by mitochondria and other organelles; (6) Organelle interactions in mitochondria mobility, shape and dynamics; and (7) Abnormalities in mitochondria interactions with other organelles and physiopathological consequences in metabolism and cancers.

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.
