Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 August 2021).
Interests: neuroendocrinology; hormones; reproduction; gastrointestinal tract; genetic; animal biotechnology
Interests: chromatography; lipidomics; fatty acids; conjugated fatty acids; peroxidation; antioxidants; chemometrics
Interests: lipidomics; fatty acids; oxysterols; lipid peroxidation; conjugated fatty acids; cancer; developmental programming; cardio-oncology
This Issue will focus on the mammalian metabolism of fatty acids. Of particular interest will be any aspect of the structure, function, or regulation of enzymes that are part of these metabolic pathways. This would include investigations of any aspects of the regulation of fatty acid metabolism through post-translational or gene expression mechanisms. It could also include any enzymes or processes that are shown to be targets of the products of these metabolic pathways, or new discoveries in diseases and clinical conditions where the study shows some aspect of fatty acid metabolism to play a causative role in, or to be affected by, the disease (e.g., type 2 diabetes, obesity, immunological disorders, lipodystrophy, steatosis, metabolic syndrome, neurological disorders, cancer). Investigations of drugs and therapeutic interventions that target enzymes or pathways of fatty acid metabolism or research that shows nutritional, therapeutic, or toxicological impacts of fatty acids on physiological function will be of interest. The investigation of fatty acids as potential biomarkers and metabolomic or lipidomic analyses in response to physiological or toxicological challenges will be considered for this Issue.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
