Special Issue Information
Since all living organisms require energy (ATP) in order to maintain homeostasis, adequate regulation of energy metabolism is crucial for maintaining health. In eukaryotic cells, mitochondria are key players in ATP production, by hosting the ATP generating process of oxidative phosphorylation. Both macro- and micronutrients potentially influence energy metabolism and mitochondrial functioning, either as substrates for (oxidative) catabolism or as essential constituents of enzymes or protein complexes involved in (mitochondrial) energy metabolism. Therefore, good metabolic health strongly depends on adequate supply of these nutrients, which, in turn, may depend on (patho) physiological and environmental conditions.
This Special Issue will include manuscripts that focus on the complex relationship between nutrients, (mitochondrial) energy metabolism and health, under various physiological conditions (e.g., ageing, exercise, hypoxia). Within this context, primary research papers as well as reviews in a variety of areas, including nutritional physiology and molecular physiology are welcomed.Dr. Arie Nieuwenhuizen

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Nutrients is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2600 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.
