JCCS

JCCS, the official organ of the International CCN Society (ICCNS), serves as a forum for the dissemination of current knowledge and information dealing with all aspects of cell-cell, cell-matrix communication, and intracellular signaling. The wide range of signaling pathways in which CCN proteins are involved and the variety of regulatory proteins with which they interact define CCN proteins as central hubs for the control of normal cell growth and differentiation. As a consequence, JCCS also adopts an interdisciplinary approach, reflecting the membership of the ICCNS.

As such, JCCS covers identification and function of receptors, ligands, and other biomolecules participating in the outward and inward cellular signaling pathways in normal and pathological conditions.

Cell-cell, cell-matrix, and cell-environment interactions often modulate or even override programmed patterns of cell behavior. In this respect, signaling is critical for normal cell growth and development, and abnormal signaling pathways have been associated with several human diseases. JCCS publishes reports incorporating morphological, biochemical, molecular and physiological approaches.

JCCS also welcomes the publication of studies reporting on innovative in vitro models that facilitate investigations of signaling networks and cell behavior.
