Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Special Issue “Cancer Cell Metabolism 2.0” is a continuation of the successful 2020 issue “Cancer Cell Metabolism” Cancer cells require excess energy and metabolite synthesis to successfully grow and metastasize. Therefore, their metabolism has to be particularly efficient. Moreover, changing extracellular conditions require that cancer cells have significant flexibility and use different pathways and supplies to supplement potentially missing metabolites. To secure the necessary substrates, cancer cells rely on the surrounding stroma and newly formed blood vessels. They also modify their metabolism and involve the tumor environment to increase their resistance to anticancer therapies. Not surprisingly, cancer cell metabolism differs significantly from its healthy counterpart and is exploited diagnostically and therapeutically. For this Special Issue, we invite the submission of research articles and reviews on metabolic mechanisms supporting tumor metastases, organ colonization, escape from immune defense, and therapeutic resistance as well as metabolic interactions with the stroma. We would like input from basic, translational, and preclinical studies.

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.
