Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Lipids and vitamins have significant influence in health and diseases. A lipid is any of various organic compounds that are insoluble in water. They include fats, waxes, oils, hormones, and certain components of membranes and function as energy-storage molecules and chemical messengers. The most important biological properties of lipids are their influence on cell permeability and the activity of many enzymes, participation in the transmission of a nerve impulse, muscle contraction, the formation of intercellular contacts, and in immunochemical processes. Vitamins are organic molecules (or a set of closely related molecules called vitamers) that are essential to an organism in small quantities for proper metabolic function. Essential nutrients cannot be synthesized in the organism in sufficient quantities for survival, and therefore must be obtained through the diet. In this project, we will explore the molecular mechanisms of how lipids and vitamins influence human’s health and diseases. Basic research studies and/or clinical studies accompanied by experimental data will be considered.
