Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Lipid species are a part of bioorganic compounds that play a crucial role in heart and neural health.

Due to their role in maintaining physiological activities like organ energy balance, membrane integrity, enzyme functions, nerve pulse transmission, or muscle contraction, different studies are now focused on the bioactive lipid compound characterization and profiling in health and disease states. Lipid dysregulation has emerged as a common feature of major cardiac and neural degenerative diseases.

Often, lipid deregulation can promote mechanical stress on the heart resulting in arterial hypertension and hypertrophic molecular signalling associated with the release of cytokines and chemokines involved in compensatory mechanisms leading to heart remodelling. Furthermore, some cytokines and chemokines associated with cardiac disorders are closely related to neural health and stability. The Special Issue aims to reveal the molecular mechanisms associated with the deregulation of bioactive lipids and cytokines and chemokines release in normal and pathological conditions associated with cardiac and neural stability. The study of novel interaction of lipids on heart and neural pathophysiology may become a good basis for potential treatments or prevention strategies in cardiac and neural health.

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.
