Mitochondria are recognized as key regulators of cellular function. In particular, stressful events and situations cause alterations to energetic and metabolic homeostasis that are invariably traced back to perturbed mitochondrial function. One of the main culprits in mitochondrial dysfunction is the formation of oxidative species, which if prolonged, results in the overwhelming of intracellular defenses and thus results in oxidized mitochondrial components, causing the aforementioned dysfunction. Given its various roles in the organism, the liver heavily relies on mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation to generate the vast amounts of ATP it requires for its daily needs, let alone when a hepatic insult is presented. As such, numerous research groups throughout the world have elected to investigate the role of oxidative stress in hepatic mitochondrial dysfunction, as well as identifying strategies and compounds that can preserve or restore mitochondrial and, concomitantly, organ function.
This Special Issue on the role of oxidative stress in hepatic mitochondrial function will publish work (both research work and review papers) on a broad range of research topics, ranging from pure toxicological events to metabolic diseases, surgical interventions, or strategic paradigms for transplantation, to name a few examples.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Antioxidants 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 2900 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.
