Special Issue "Current Understanding of Nutritional Factors including Vitamin D and Melatonin Effects on Health"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2021).
The recent years have provided new insights into the identification and characterization of new properties of nutritional factors, including vitamin D, melatonin, and their metabolites. Many studies have revealed new biological roles and health-related or clinical applications for these compounds. Recent advances have revised or identified new mechanisms of their action that involve defining specific receptors or regulatory proteins or organelles such as mitochondria mediating their phenotypic activity, and have established precise mechanisms of the metabolic activation and/or inactivation of these compounds. These advances define novel pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, and cosmeceutical targets for improving health in the chemoprevention or treatment of different diseases.
The goal of this Special Issue titled “Current Understanding of Nutritional Factors Including Vitamin D and Melatonin Effects on Health” is to collect the latest research findings on a broad range of research topics concerning the effects of dietary factors on a variety of health aspects. We welcome original experimental research, review articles, and commentary articles leading to a better understanding of the biological actions of nutritional factors, their role in disease pathogenesis, and their potential roles in preventive healthcare and treatment.
