Nucleocytoplasmic transport is a critical cellular process and vitally important for normal cell function. Trafficking between the cytoplasm and the nucleus occurs through nuclear pore complexes, macromolecular assemblies that punctuate the nuclear envelope, and constituted of proteins, known as nucleoporins. We have made exceptional progress in our understanding of nucleocytoplasmic transport, nuclear pore complex architecture, and nucleoporin function in recent years and unravelled the plurality of cellular processes that are interconnected with the nucleocytoplasmic transport machinery. This Special Issue offers an Open Access forum at bringing together a collection of original research and review articles addressing the expanding aspects of nucleocytoplasmic transport and nuclear pore function. To that end, we are welcoming contributions that may cover molecular mechanisms or functions of nuclear pore proteins and nuclear transport factors, not only in nucleocytoplasmic transport and nuclear pore structure, but, also, for example, in the regulation of gene expression and the cell cycle, the crosstalk with other cell signalling programs, and the implication in health and disease. We hope to provide a stimulating collection that will further research in this fascinating field.

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. Cells is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 550 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
