Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Marine lipids are undoubtedly representatives of the marine chemical biodiversity. Phospholipids, glycolipids and oxylipins have considerable importance and will be taken into account, especially glycolipids that excite increasing interest regarding their promising antitumor and immunomodulating activities. Fatty acids (FA) and FA-containing lipids in particular are ubiquitous in the marine organisms, especially invertebrates, and they have proved to be a major source of unique structures. Thus, marine invertebrates, such as mollusks or most primitive animals (sponges, gorgonians), are rich in lipid compounds of biological interest. In addition to the very important polyunsaturated FA, such as those from the n-3 series, a great number of various FA occur in marine organisms ranging from bacteria and first planktonic marine producers to fish, including branched, non-methylene-interrupted, conjugated, hydroxylated, methoxylated and halogenated FA. Nevertheless, these unique lipids originate from unusual biosynthetic pathways and their biological roles still remain unknown.

This Special Issue devoted to “Marine Lipids” will highlight recent interesting studies regarding, among other topics, bioassay guided fractionation employed to isolate compounds displaying promising bioactivities, use of new lipid extraction techniques such as enzymatic tissue disruption, and using the lipidomic approach in the characterization and comparison of lipid classes present in biological samples. The aim of this issue is to present recent advances and to introduce some important future research directions in the field of research. Thus, we hope that gathering manuscripts here will inform on a number of aspects of recent developments within this field.

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. Marine Drugs 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 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs).
