Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Obesity, a complex disease involving an excessive amount of body fat, significantly increases the risk of many metabolic diseases and various cancers. Although the main causes of excessive accumulation of adipose tissue are known and numerous efforts have been undertaken to fight the obesogenic environment, the number of overweight and obese people continues to grow. The obesity epidemic intensifies the need for research on the etiology of this disease, especially its molecular mechanisms. There is considerable evidence that supports the role of epigenetic mechanisms, as well as cross-talks between adipocytes and other cells, and between adipose tissue and other tissues in the development of obesity and obesity-related diseases. 

For this Special Issue, we seek papers that focus on the molecular mechanisms associated with the development of obesity and obesity-related diseases, including adipocyte biology and adipose tissue disfunction, cell-to-cell metabolic cross-talk and cross-talk between microbiome and adipose tissue, and the molecular mechanisms underlying these processes. Data on specific molecular patterns of adipocytes and other cells involved in the development of adipose tissue dysfunction and its metabolic consequences are welcome. New insights into molecular mechanisms related to changes in eating behaviours that lead to obesity are also of importance.

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. 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.
