Role of myokines and adipokines and other cross-talk mechanisms of regulation of endocrine and metabolic functions

Inter-tissue communication is essential for maintaining homeostasis in the body. With the advent of new discovery-based platform technologies, the past decade has heralded a new era of scientific discovery in the area of tissue cross-talk. Understanding of how tissues communicate has greatly expanded, with 1) novel endocrine roles ascribed to metabolic tissues and 2) completely unexpected endocrine roles discovered for a variety of small molecules. This special Call for Papers is designed to showcase the breadth of basic science findings in the fields of metabolic/endocrine communication.

The editors of AJP - E&M hope investigators can combine the use of discovery-based platforms and outstanding biological research to provide advances in our understanding of inter-tissue communication. We will consider both original research articles and review articles. For review articles only, authors should email the editorial office ( with a pre-submission inquiry including a working title, author and affiliation list, abstract, and brief outline of the content for approval by the editors.

Submission Deadline: September 30, 2017
