This Collection features our best recent content from CDDpress, which publishes forefront, innovative and international research covering the cell biology, molecular biology, and biochemistry of cell death and disease. Updated each month, this collection of articles includes content from all three CDDpress titles: Cell Death and Differentiation, Cell Death & Disease, and Cell Death Discovery.
In this collection we present a selection of Cell Death Discovery articles particularly appreciated by our readership, on the basis of download, sharing and citing metrics. This focus highlights studies ranging from basic research to translation aspects, relevant for cancer, inflammation and viral infections. The Cell Death Discovery editors wish to share this collection hoping to provide an interesting selection to their readers.
On March 11th 2020 the WHO declared the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak a pandemic. Since then, the worldwide research community has started the fight against this infection, cause of the life-threatening severe acute respiratory syndrome, COVID-19. One year after, we have a much deeper understanding of the biology of this virus, and several vaccines that are currently in clinical use. Here, we offer a selection of articles published in Cell Death Discovery that contributed to the global fight against COVID-19.
The complexity of the human genome clearly emerged with the identification of several classes of non-coding RNAs. Within these, long-non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) appear intriguingly complex, adopting many alternative mechanisms of actions and impinging on several basic biological processes of the cell. Deregulations of lncRNAs play a pivotal role in human disease and particularly in cancer. This collection of articles features some of the most relevant studies on lncRNAs published in Cell Death Discovery.
This Special Issue of Cell Death Discovery collects reviews and provocative opinions on current issues in the field of cell death. The collection focuses on different previously unexplored aspects of relevance for physiology and/or cancer; these include implications of metabolic stress, microenvironment, inflammation as well as interaction with oncogenes/oncosuppressors. This Issue is dedicated to a very special person, Professor Yoel Kloog (Tel Aviv University, Israel), who left a great legacy of crucial scientific contributions and passion and dedication for science. He was and will remain a model and an inspiration for younger scientists. Here, experts in the field of cell death pay tribute to the memory of their friend.
In this Web Focus we have showcased the articles from 2018 and 2019 that you have been reading, sharing and citing in Cell Death Discovery. Featuring original articles from authors around the world, we hope you enjoy reading this collection.
CDDpress, with its three journals (Cell Death & Differentiation, Cell Death & Disease, Cell Death Discovery), has just finished the publication for the year 2018, publishing insightful and high-impact articles on the frontlines of cell biology and biochemistry research. In 2018, the journals received nearly 5000 submissions and published around 1400 selected papers. Of particular interest were several pivotal and influential papers highlighting the role of p53 in cancer and other diseases.
Here, with the "Best of CDDpress 2018 on p53" collection, we offer a selection of 2017-2018’s most impactful papers on p53. We hope that you will enjoy reading this special collection.
