The MESSENGER is an international peer-reviewed journal, focused on all aspects of messenger-signaling. The MESSENGER is devoted to all aspects of messenger- signaling, from the upstream activation of the receptors of the first messengers to the downstream signaling cascades. Undoubtedly, more novel second messengers will be discovered, expanding the scope of the journal appropriately. The MESSENGER publishes review articles, full research articles and short communications of important new scientific findings on all research aspects of messengers.
