About this Research Topic
The field of immunometabolism has multiple facets of investigation, such as the identification of metabolic sensors and moonlightning enzymes, the comprehension of how metabolites interfere with other non-metabolic signaling pathways, the understanding of how inflammatory molecules can impair metabolism-programmed immune responses, and the establishment of different axes such as microbiota-immunometabolism, endocrine system-immunometabolism, and central nervous system-immunometabolism.
As a new layer of cellular regulation, this field of research requires a revisit of old concepts while offering a plethora of novel possibilities for investigation and development of new treatments for virtually any disease, including infectious diseases, chronic inflammation, and cancer.
This Research Topic welcomes the contribution of Original Research, Review, Mini-review, Hypothesis and Theory, and Perspective articles on Immunometabolism, including, but not limited to, the metabolic needs or disturbances of immune cells in health and disease, how nutrients or nutrition shape immune responses, the potential immune-mediated links between metabolic diseases with the development and progression of cancer or other inflammatory diseases, and how the microbiota impact immunometabolism.
Keywords: Metabolism, Inflammation, Immune Cell Fate, Immune Regulation, Metabolic Sensors, Metabolites, Nutrients, Microbiota
