    Special Issue Description

    Dear Collegues,

    The proteins in the human body are known to contribute to the formation of glucose in severe cases of diabetes mellitus, but the exact extent of this sugar formation is unknown. As a result, it has been estimated that anywhere from 45 to 80 percent of body protein is convertible into glucose. The significance of glucose as an intermediary metabolic product is becoming increasingly clear. Knopf, Glilssner and Pick, Embden, Lusk, Ringer, and Dakins' work with depancreatinized or phlorhizinized dogs demonstrated that the majority of the amino acids occurring in significant amounts in the protein molecule are convertible into glucose.

    The fact that different proteins produce large amounts of sugar in diabetic phlorhizinized animals has been thoroughly established. Because amino acids, rather than higher complexes, are the most important direct products of protein digestion in recent years, it seems reasonable that glucose derivable from catabolizing proteins is formed from the glycogenetic amino acid complexes present in any given protein. The amount of these sugar-derived amino acids varies greatly between proteins. As a result, the proteins may be found to yield amounts of sugar proportional to the amount of glucogenic amino-acid radicals present in them during catabolism.

    Manuscript Submission information

    Manuscripts should be submitted online by registering and logging in to this link. 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 on email address:[email protected] 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.
