Special Issue "Cancer Metabolism"
A special issue of Metabolites (ISSN 2218-1989).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (28 February 2017)
In the 1920’s a German scientist Warburg reported abnormal metabolism of tumour cells that resulted in a shift from ATP generation through oxidative phosphorylation to ATP generation through glycolysis, even in the presence of oxygen. Despite this, over the past 6 decades molecular biology has been the major focus of cancer research. The past decade has seen a revival of interest to better understand cancer metabolism and its association with oncogenes/tumour suppressor genes. The recent interesting findings of glycolysis, glutaminolysis, serine/glycine metabolism, amino acids metabolism, lipid and membrane lipid metabolism, enzymes in TCA cycle mutations in cancer cells has led to a renewed interest in the field of cancer metabolism. The emergence of systems biology, following the publication of the complete human genome, has focused on the integration of information from gene regulation with the molecular phenotypes of proteins (including enzymes) and metabolites. A more complete understanding of cancer metabolism will be essential to define the underlying cellular networks and proper targets for developing anti-cancer treatments. To this end, we are in the process of bringing a special issue of Cancer Metabolism in the online journal of Metabolites. The submission deadline is 28th February 2016.
In view of your expertise in the field of cancer metabolism, we would like to invite you for your contribution in this special issue dedicated to Cancer Metabolism. This will be of a great help for the all researchers working in this field.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Metabolites is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 850 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
