This Issue is now open for submissions.

Description

Wide arrays of alternative feedstuffs are used in animal nutrition to supplement feeding regime, boost animal welfare, enhance functional properties of animal products and reduce feeding cost in livestock husbandry. These feedstuffs include agro-industrial by-products, crop residues, household/sea food wastes, ammoniate straws, forage resources and crude extracts from medicinal plants. The bioactive compounds and nutrients in these alternative feedstuffs vary widely and as bio-transformers of dietary matter, livestock can utilise these compounds to aid cellular metabolism or catabolism. Consequently, interference with intercellular communication, intracellular signalling, molecular regulation and metabolic pathway are typically observed and ultimately impact on animal welfare and functional quality of animal products such as eg, meat, and milk.
There are still huge knowledge gap on how dose response of myriads of secondary metabolites from alternative feedstuffs from several ecological zones elicit a chain of synergistic or antagonistic reactions on molecular markers influencing mechanism of cellular nutrition, gut microbiome, diet-gene regulatory pathways, appetite signals, cell proliferation, cytotoxicity or apoptosis, nutrient optimization, muscle cell characterisation and functional properties of animal products.
 

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

Submissions of original research, review manuscripts are welcome from scientists in the field of Animal Science, Biotechnology, Nutrition, Functional Foods, including statistical or Computational modeling to the Special Issue on “Alternative Feedstuffs: Molecular Markers for Cellular Signalling, Nutrient Optimization and Functionality of Animal Products” for consideration for publication in our journal, Applied Cell Biology.
