Cross-talk between adipose tissue and other organs has been attracting growing interest. Secretion of hormones by adipose tissue such as “adipokines” is involved in the homeostasis of many organs, including the lungs, influencing pathways of inflammatory processes, immunity, insulin resistance, lipid/glucose metabolisms, as well as cell proliferation.
Among adipokines, adiponectin is a protein hormone of 244 amino acids, abundantly produced and secreted by adipose tissue, which circulates in high concentrations (5–30 mg/mL), accounting for 0.01% of total serum proteins.
This Special Issue will focus on advances in understanding the relevance of adipokines as drivers of metabolic perturbations in cross-talk between organs.

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.
