Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the following short description of our publication project we want to provide you with information regarding the progress with our work.

We have gathered a very representative panel of 20 authors (with their co-authors) who have agreed to write chapters for our public access online publication project, which will also lead to a book publication.

The following is a short outline of the contents:

Oxidative stress and disturbance of oxidative homeostasis is widely described in the literature as being one of the main causes of cell death, as well as creating detrimental processes in whole organisms including aging and various diseases such as cardiovascular disease, neurodegenerative diseases and cancer.

We are pleased to present the current list of contributions on the following subjects:

  • The basic biology of oxidative stress and oxidative stress defense;
  • Mass-spectrometry-based methods for detection of oxidized proteins in disease;
  • High-resolution respirometry and oxidative stress;
  • The proteomic and metabolomic signature of oxidative stress;
  • Metabolic re-configuration in oxidative stress;
  • Oxygen metabolism and oxidative stress in plants;
  • Physiological roles of NADPH oxidases in fungi;
  • Oxidative stress, ion channels and neurodegeneration;
  • Oxidative stress in autism;
  • ROS and inflammation: from oxidative stress to cell signaling;
  • Ferritin-induced oxidative stress;
  • Heme oxygenase in hypoxia and inflammation;
  • Muscle metabolism and oxidative stress;
  • Hypoxia, oxidative stress and therapy;
  • Oxidative stress and advanced glycation end products;
  • 4-Hydroxynonenal—A bioactive lipid peroxidation product;
  • Oxidative stress responses in Candida albicans;
  • Role of oxidative stress in extracellular trap formation;
  • The role of oxidative stress in aging;
  • Oxidative damage in the aging human skin.

The chapters of this upcoming thematic issue will be published immediately after peer review and acceptance online.

Yours sincerely,

Prof. Dr. Michael Breitenbach

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office 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 refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Biomolecules is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 600 CHF (Swiss Francs). English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
