Chronobiology Of Metabolism

Last Updated: 4 October 2017

Inspired by the recent news of the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine presented to Jeffrey C. Hall, Michael Rosbash and Michael W. Young ''for their discoveries of molecular mechanisms controling the circadian rhythm'', the FEBS Letters editorial team is pleased to present a Virtual Issue on the Chronobiology of Metabolism.

The Circadian Clock is ticking to synchronize all biological processes around the day and night rhythm. Metabolic functions are inherently linked to circadian rhythm, and disruptions in the clockwork have been associated with metabolic dysfunction and disease. In this Virtual Issue, we have put together Research Articles shedding light onto all different aspects of the Chronobiology of Metabolism.

We open this colection with articles about how the Circadian Clock is interlinked with Diabetes and Obesity. We then present severa articles on circadian regulation in the liver, followed by some studies providing insights onto how Circadian Clock genes may link metabolism to heart physiology. Finall, we present some Research Articles on the interplay between cellular metabolism and the Circadian Clock.

We hope you enjoy this collection and invite you to further enrich it by submitting relevant experimental data to FEBS Letters.
