Special Issue in Antioxidants: Antioxidant Defences and Redox Homeostasis in Animals
Commercial meat, egg, and milk production is associated with a range of stresses, including environmental, technological, nutritional, and internal/biological stresses. It is important to realise that because of technological restrictions or financial reasons, it is practically impossible to avoid stresses in commercial poultry/animal production, so there is a need to develop optimal strategies to effectively deal with them. Since, on the molecular level, most of commercially-relevant stresses are associated with overproduction of free radicals and the disturbance of the redox homeostasis, nutritional antioxidants became important players in the development of the anti-stress strategy.
Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:
- Commercially-relevant stresses in poultry and farm animals: protective strategies;
- Molecular mechanisms of interactions between antioxidants: vitamin E and selenium and beyond;
- Interactions between dietary antioxidants and drugs in the development of antibiotic free animal/poultry production;
- Oxidative stress and poultry diseases/disorders: sudden death syndrome, ascites, breast muscle myopathies (wooden breast, white stripping, stringy-spongy, etc.), etc.;
- Preslaughter stress and meat quality;
- Maternal effects of dietary antioxidants;
- Regulatory roles of microbiota in the redox balance in the gut;
- Similarities and differences in antioxidant defence systems between monogastric and ruminant animals;
- Antioxidant-enriched food production: prom prevention of oxidative stress in poultry/animals to functional food production;
- Omega-3 fatty acids and natural antioxidants—the important interplay between oxidative stress prevention and functional food production.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Animals 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 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
