Special Issue "Advances in Metabolites Produced by Microbiota"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 29 February 2024 | Viewed by 829
The term microbiota represents microorganisms (bacteria, fungi, archaea, viruses and parasites) that live in the body and interact with our cells. The meaning of the word microbiome is much broader and refers to the entire ecosystem, including microbial communities, their genes and metabolites, as well as the environmental and host conditions.
One of the main functions of the microbiota is metabolic, that is, the production of different metabolites from various substrates in the body. Among these metabolites produced by the microbiota, there are short-chain fatty acids, vitamins, bile acids, lipids and amino acids. These metabolites perform various regulatory functions to mediate the symbiotic relationships between microbes and their hosts.
In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but not limited to) the following:
- Metabolites produced by microbiota (short-chain fatty acids, vitamins, bile acids, lipids and amino acids);
- Metabolomics disorders;
- Interaction between metabolites and the host.
I look forward to receiving your contributions.
Dr. Arancha Llama-Palacios
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. Biomolecules is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2700 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.
