Calcium signaling plays a key role in a number of cell functions and has been implicated in the development and/or maintenance of several cancer hallmarks, including cell migration, proliferation, tumor metastasis and apoptosis resistance, as well as in the pathogenesis of tumor neovascularization and angiogenesis. Intriguingly, the expression of the different calcium handling proteins, including channels, sensors, pumps, etc, is differentially altered in distinct cancer types and their functional role in cancer cell biology is not consistent in all the cell types investigated. The analysis and revision of the expression and functional remodeling of the elements of the calcium signaling toolkit has provided essential information about the biology of the different cancer cells, which, no doubt, shall help to clarify the cellular mechanisms underlying the development of the different cancer hallmarks.

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. Cancers is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2200 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.
