Special Issue "Lipids and Small Metabolites in Cancer"

Interests: cancer; trafficking; lipid
Small molecule metabolites, such as amino acids, fatty acids, lipids, and numerous components of biochemical pathways, have emerged as a characteristic feature of tumor development. A wealth of omics data identified changes in the metabolome and the lipidome as a new hallmark of tumorigenesis. Understanding around pathological changes in the complex metabolome and lipidome has drastically improved. Cluster and pathway analyses of large datasets are inevitable bioinformatic tools to decode specific molecular patterns and their functions involved in the pathogenesis of tumors. The functional rewiring of disease-affected molecular cohorts can fuel complex multimodal therapeutic solutions with improved capacity to overcome resistance mechanisms.
This Special Issue, titled “Lipids and small metabolites in cancer”, welcomes all aspects of metabolome- and lipidome-related cancer research and review articles for a comprehensive view of this special topic based on omics screens, bioinformatics, targeted analyses, in vitro and in vivo experimental, or clinical results.

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. Cancers 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 2900 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.
