Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Fatty acids are ubiquitous natural compounds that serve various and diverse biological roles. Fatty acids exert many bioactivities, including antimicrobial, antiviral or anti-cancer effects, immune modulation, organismal toxicity, cell communication and regulation of gene transcription. The diversity of biological effects exerted by fatty acids is mainly due to differences in their structures and the types of lipids into which they are incorporated. Importantly, there is increasing appreciation for the considerable variety of fatty acids from organisms living in our oceans and their promise for biotechnological or biomedical application. Progress in this field is advancing rapidly and this Special Issue of Marine Drugs is focussed on highlighting some of the ways that fatty acids function as biological mediators or effectors and the potential of those from marine sources for development as pharmacological or therapeutic agents. As Guest Editors, we invite researchers interested in this topic to contribute original research reports and in depth reviews to this Special Issue. Accepted contributions will be published online along with invited articles.
