Special Issue "Phospholipid Nutrition"
A special issue of Nutrients (ISSN 2072-6643).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2011)
Phospholipids, or glycerophospholipids, are vital for the structural integrity of mammalian membranes and lung surfactant. Phospholipids also play a central role in signal transduction, prostaglandin synthesis, lipoprotein secretion and intestinal lipid absorption. Given the plethora of biological functions, it is not surprising that impaired phospholipid supply, either through impaired metabolism or dietary deficiency, has been linked to the pathogenesis of several diseases, such as: non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cystic fibrosis, and dementia. The aim of this special issue is to explore the effects of dietary phospholipids, or their precursors, on a wide-range of physiological processes.
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. Nutrients is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
