Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Given the global epidemic of obesity, there is increasing interest in adipose tissue and adipocyte biology. Three types of adipocytes, i.e., white, brown and beige/brite,  play key roles in energy homeostasis. This Special Issue focuses on the cellular biology aspect of adipose progenitor cells and adipocytes subpopulations, as well as on adipose tissue microenvironment, aims to unravel novel molecular mechanisms underlying adipocyte functions.

We welcome reviews, original research articles, communications, and perspective articles on all aspects related to the molecular and cellular mechanisms of adipose tissue and adipocytes in health and disease. 

We look forward to receiving your manuscripts.

Dr. Christian Dani
Guest Editor

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. Cells 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 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.
