Special Issue "Protein Metabolism and Glucose Homeostasis"
A special issue of Nutrients (ISSN 2072-6643).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 July 2019).
Glucose homeostasis is under the control of multiple factors linked to genetics and lifestyle. Dietary factors are important determinants of glucose metabolism, and, among them, protein intake is involved in short- and long-term effects. Direct mechanisms include regulatory effects of amino acids on pancreatic, gastrointestinal, and hepatic hormone secretion, the role of amino acids as precursors and signals in the different glucose metabolism pathways, as well as their interference with insulin signaling. Indirect effects of dietary protein on glucose homeostasis must also be considered, since the level and sources of proteins influence the diet composition with respect to other nutrients and non-nutritive molecules.
This Special Issue aims to gather recent advances in the understanding of the interferences between protein metabolism and glucose homeostasis, their dysregulations and related pathologies, and of how the quantity and quality of dietary protein positively or negatively influence related health outcomes. Reviews, experimental works in animals and humans, as well as epidemiological studies are welcome.
