Interests: analysis of nitric oxide (NO)/natriuretic peptides (NP)/cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP)-mediated signal transduction to investigate the molecular, physiological, pathophysiological and pharmacological mechanisms of this signalling pathway, e.g., in the cardiovascular, renal, gastrointestinal and hematological/immunological system
Cellular signalling is the base for the extra- and intracellular communication. Diverse signal recognition receptors and signal transduction pathways were defined which regulate cellular functions, metabolism and development. Furthermore, these pathways are essential for cellular dynamics and build a highly regulated cellular signalling network. However, dysregulations of these signalling pathways are also causes for pathophysiological processes and diseases. Therefore, the understanding of the diverse signalling molecules, signal recognition mechanisms and signal transduction pathways is fundamental for the insight into physiological and pathophysiological processes. The scope of the special issue is to summarize and enlarge the knowledge in signalling processes and networks in diverse cells and tissues.
Therefore, authors are invited to submit original research and review articles which address the progress and current standing of cellular signalling processes.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Identification and new aspects of extra- and intracellular signalling molecules and pathways
- Analysis of receptor-signal recognition and/or its transduction into physiological/pathophysiological responses
- Techniques for the analysis and identification of signalling molecules, pathways and networks

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a 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.
