Special Issue "Plant Proteostasis"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2020).
Proteostasis is regulated, among others, by proteolytic degradation through bulk proteolytic machineries (proteasome and autophagy), but also by a diverse and fascinating group of proteases that execute limited proteolysis. Exploiting the chemical diversity and functions of proteolytic pathways could generate new leads for improving plants and related biobased products. Much remains to be discovered, as we now have new methods for determining the fate and turnover of proteins, important proteases, and their corresponding substrates. Furthermore, proteolytic degradation pathway engineering is now expanding from models to crops, with the potential to benefit productivity and environmental resilience to threats. This Special Issue of Plants will highlight the molecular aspects, evolution, and diversity of plant proteostasis.

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. Plants is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
