Special Issue "Marine Toxins Affecting Cholinergic System"
A special issue of Marine Drugs (ISSN 1660-3397).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2019)
Prof. William R. Kem
This Special Issue on “Marine Toxins Affecting Cholinergic Systems” will focus on marine toxins and other marine natural compounds which interfere with cholinergic systems. Among possible sources of such compounds, which have been already identified as producers, are dinoflagellate toxins, marine sponges, nemerteans, bryozoans, soft corals, and peptides from cone snails. Papers using marine compounds that act as agonists/antagonists/inhibitors/modulators on peripheral cholinergic systems, as well as those affecting various nicotinic acetylcholine receptors in the central nervous system or in cancer cells are welcome. We are especially interested in studies that report on the involvement of cholinergic system and interfering compounds with cell signalling. Papers that describe the possible therapeutic uses of such compounds are also welcome.
As Guest Editors of this Special Issue of Marine Drugs, we invite you to provide your valuable contributions to this Special Issue on “Marine Toxins Affecting Cholinergic Systems”.
