Proteins and Amino Acids

A section of Nutrients (ISSN 2072-6643).

Section Information

Dietary proteins and their constituent amino acids are fundamental to health. This section invites authors to submit original research and review articles in basic or clinical nutrition and regarding mechanisms underlying relationships between proteins (and their constituents, e.g., peptides and amino acids (AA)) in relation to metabolism, physiology and health. We welcome articles in humans and animal models, in health, across the aging lifecourse and during pathological processes where protein/AA constituents affect physiological outcome measures. Relevant in vitro biology approaches are also welcome.

Subject Areas

Potential topics include but are not limited to:

  • Protein/AA and cancers;
  • Protein/AA and surgery;
  • Protein/AA and inflammatory bowel diseases;
  • Protein/AA and rheumatology conditions such as arthritis;
  • Protein/AA and respiratory diseases (including COPD, COVID-19);
  • Protein/AA and organ failures (heart failure, kidney disease, liver failure, etc.);
  • protein/AA and intensive care settings;
  • Lifecourse protein/AA intake and requirements;
  • Protein digestion kinetics;
  • Protein turnover and metabolism;
  • Physiological/metabolic roles of amino acids;
  • Protein and skeletal muscle;
  • Protein/AA and health across the life course;
  • Protein/AA and exercise/activity;
  • Protein/AA and ageing;
  • Protein/AA and regulatory cellular signaling;
  • Impacts of alternative protein sources (e.g., sustainable protein sources);
  • Novel bioactive properties of dietary proteins/AA.
