Special Issue "Fungal and Mycotoxin Metabolism"
A special issue of Metabolites (ISSN 2218-1989).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 June 2019
Mycotoxins and other fungal metabolites possess numerous biological activities. As a result, these substances may cause disease and death in plants and animals including humans or they may be exploited because of their pharmacological potentials. At the same time, mycotoxins and fungal metabolites can be modified by chemical or enzymatic reactions. The latter are important for the detoxification of mycotoxins in all living beings that are exposed to such compounds. In some cases, such enzymatic reactions may also result in bio-activation, which is known to occur in the case of aflatoxin B1. The metabolism and biotransformation of fungal metabolites in both plants and animals are commonly studied in a range of test systems and include different analytical approaches. This Special Issue is devoted to new studies in the field. We especially invite manuscripts that focus on the use of in vitro approaches for the study of mycotoxin and fungal metabolite metabolism. We also especially welcome manuscripts that focus on aspects of data extraction and processing, including structure identification of metabolites, e.g., by using new software tools.

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 monthly 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 1000 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.
