Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nutrients provide substrates, energy and specific regulatory elements influencing all metabolic pathways in the organism. Cell structures and functions are strictly regulated by different mechanisms, where nutritional factors, food components as well as a number of endogenous and environmental factors have an impact. Genetically and phenotypically molecular dependent processes involving biochemical reactions, hormones and endocrine mediators, enzymes, transcription factors, etc are affected by feeding and fasting.

In this context, the aim of this issue of the International Journal of Molecular Sciences is specifically focused in providing novel concepts and updated critical views about the nutritional control of metabolism considering some of the following scopes and scientific perspectives, but not limited to:

Role of dietary carbohydrates/fibre on glucose metabolism;
Role of specific amino acids on energy homeostasis;
Omega 3 and other fatty acids and inflammation;
New roles of Vitamins in regulating metabolic disturbances;

Antioxidants and mitochondrial functions;
Vitamin D and metabolic syndrome features;
Genetic programming associated to perinatal nutrition;

Endocrine control of nutritional pathways: New hormones and adipokines;
Chrononutrition and nutrient metabolism;
Nutritional control of the oxidative status;
Nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics aspects of the nutritional control of metabolism;
Role of Hypoxia and Hyperoxia on cell metabolism.

Submission

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a 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 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 1600 CHF.
