Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce a second volume of the special issue on "Ribosome Biogenesis in “War and Peace of the Cell”".
The volume will be published in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences - IJMS (https://0-www-mdpi-com.brum.beds.ac.uk/journal/ijms/, ISSN 1422-0067, IF 4.183), and it is now open to receive submissions of full research articles and comprehensive review papers for peer-review and possible publication.

Intense investigations by numerous groups have identified a set of canonical pathways for the biogenesis of the ribosomal subunits in all three biological kingdoms. However, these pathways must be flexible to adapt ribosome biogenesis to organismal development and to stress stemming from environmental changes, mutations, and stochastic variations in the availability of ribosome components.
The goal of this special volume is to generate a rich collection of research and review papers on ribosomal formation following both canonical and modified pathways, switches between pathways, and the regulation of the rate of ribosome formation.
Below is a list of anticipated keywords and phrases, but do not feel limited by this list:
•    changes to the ribosome assembly pathway and kinetics in response to growth conditions, cell signaling, cell differentiation, and mutations
•    “specialized” ribosomes with non-canonical composition and function
•    surveillance of ribosome biogenesis
•    inactivation and degradation of mature ribosomes
•    interactions of ribosome biogenesis with other processes in the nucleus, nucleolus and cytoplasm of eukaryotic cells
•    coordination of other cellular processes, such as cell division, with the ribosome assembly process
•    deviations from the canonical model of the economy of ribosome biogenesis and cell growth (Warner 1999; Schaechter et al 1958).
•    Transport of ribosome components and particles
•    Human disease states linked to ribosome biogenesis

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.
