Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Molecular oxygen is one of those fundamental and essential elements to ensure life and survival of most organisms on the third rock from the sun. Through this molecule, efficient formation of the energy molecule and genetic building block ATP is possible and thus allows the organism to perform work (the thermodynamical definition thereof). However, it is the same molecular oxygen that threatens aerobic life on this planet, because of its potential for radical formation (it is a biradical, although Pauli restricted). From molecular oxygen derived species, Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS), have long been implicated in a multitude of diseases, but not until the discovery that nitric oxide is an essential signaling molecule has the view of the all destructive ROS changed to include normal biological function. Redox signaling has become an important field of research in the biological and biomedical sciences. The importance of these mechanisms that influence genes and thus cell function, but might also involve epigenetic modifications, is clear; the mechanisms themselves are still largely intangible.

This special issue calls for contributions, original research, mini and full reviews, commentaries, educational papers, and perspectives that address the progress and current standing in redox signaling biology. These include, but are not limited to:

  • molecular aspects of reactive species involved in redox signaling
  • antioxidants, and other redox-dependent processes
  • redox-based therapeutics and impact on health care

Other aspects of oxidative stress, please submit to the separate issue on Oxidative Stress and Ageing in IJMS

Submission

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly 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 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs).
