In this collection of 23 articles, contributors define and describe the role of nutrients such as amino acids, lipids, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals in cell signaling. Their topics include nuclear receptors, transcription factors, and signaling cascades (including retinoid signaling, Vitamin D-regulated pathways and the effects of nutrient deprivation on the expression of growth-arrest genes), amino acids, lips and glycation (including anabolic effects of amino acids and insulin in the liver and autophagy), insulin release, signaling and insulin resistance (including pancreatic beta cells as unique fuel sensors), calcium-dependent signaling, and feeding and nutrient homeostatis.
