Special Issue in Cells: Molecular Mechanisms of Hepatocellular Carcinoma
Phytochemicals are natural compounds produced by many kinds of plants, and their function is generally to help them thrive or thwart predators or pathogens. It is reported that there are several beneficial effects of phytochemicals on human health such as anti-cancer, anti-immune-response, anti-bacterial, and antioxidant effects. Over the last ten years, phytochemicals have been widely investigated to develop effective medicines for the treatment of various diseases because of their high efficacy and minimal side effects.
In this specific issue, we are gathering manuscripts (reviews and articles) about the regulation of cellular processes and signaling pathways by novel phytochemicals that could be applied to the development of functional foods (nutraceuticals), functional cosmetics (cosmeceuticals), and even medicines.

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.
