Cell Metabolism

Cell Metabolism publishes reports of novel results in any area of metabolic biology, from molecular and cellular biology to translational studies. The unifying theme is homeostatic mechanisms in health and disease, from simpler model systems all the way to the clinic.

Published work should not only be of exceptional significance within its field, but also of interest to researchers outside the immediate area. Cell Metabolism also provides expert analysis and commentary on key findings in the field. The journal’s mission is to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and concepts across the entire metabolic research community, cultivating new areas and fostering cross-disciplinary collaborations in basic research and clinical investigation.

Quality is the cornerstone of every Cell Press journal. From the unparalleled research we receive on a range of topics to the rapid review process, Cell Press sets the standard for excellence in scientific publishing. Our journals are renowned for being:
·    Respected - Expert international reviewers assess the latest research findings.
·    Rapid - Streamlined review process helps submissions reach publication more quickly.
·    Relevant – Published content is at the forefront of research, making it a "must-read” for those interested in the field.



Fette Fliegen

Max-Planck-Wissenschaftler identifizieren evolutionär konserviertes "Adipositas-Gen" in der Fruchtfliege Drosophila. Die kontrollierte Speicherung von Körperfett in Zeiten des Nahrungsüberschusses und dessen Mobilisierung in Hungerperioden ist eine Grundeigenschaft aller Lebewesen. Ist diese Regulation gestört, kommt es zu krankhaftem Übergewicht und Fettleibigkeit. Wissenschaftler des Max-Planck-Instituts für biophysikalische Chemie haben systematisch nach "Adipositas-Genen" bei der Fruchtfliege gesucht
