Special Issue "Lipid Metabolism"
A special issue of Biology (ISSN 2079-7737).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2014).
Interests: intracellular lipid transport in health and disease; lipid and lipoprotein metabolism; vascular contributions to diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease
It is becoming increasingly evident that intracellular proteins can specifically regulate the direction of lipid transport within cells, thereby influencing the storage, synthesis and export of lipids, and the activity of nuclear receptor transcription factors involved in lipid and lipoprotein metabolism. Defective intracellular lipid transport may also contribute to a number of disease states, including metabolic disorders and tumorigenesis.
For this special issue, we invite research articles on aspects of lipid transport within cells and tissues, and particularly those which contribute to our understanding of the role of intracellular lipid transporters in pathological conditions.
