Welcome to the Special Issue of Biochemistry Section of the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, on “Osteoclastogenesis and Osteogenesis”.
Bone is a highly dynamic tissue that is continuously remodeled to attain and maintain optimal bone integrity, mass, and strength. Normal bone remodeling is tightly regulated by a balance between osteoclastic bone resorption and osteoblastic bone formation. However, the physiological condition can be changed by various factors, which lead to an imbalance of bone remodeling and develop bone diseases such as osteoporosis. Thus, osteoclastogenesis and osteogenesis are the most basic, but they are the most essential in bone biology. This Special Issue focuses on novel molecular mechanisms of osteoblasts and osteoclasts contributing to bone remodeling and provides a powerful platform for elucidating novel insights on bone pathophysiology. We very welcome the submission of original research articles and comprehensive reviews.

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.
