Traditionally reactive oxygen species (ROS) have been considered as detrimental for cell biology due to their capacity to oxidize proteins, lipids or nucleic acids. However, during the last two decades, we have become aware of the physiological importance of a moderate production of ROS. The concept of ROS as second messengers is currently widely accepted. In order to fully understand the importance of ROS for the control of cellular signaling, we would need to identify the signaling proteins regulated by ROS and also to understand how the production of ROS is regulated in physiological conditions. NADPH oxidases are a family of enzymes, present in all eukaryotic cells. Their only known function is the production of ROS; moreover, their activity can be regulated. In other words, this family of enzymes fulfils all the requirements for being one of the main sources of ROS involved in redox signaling. An interesting challenge is to unravel the specific role of the different NADPH oxidase family members for cell biology and physiology. This Special Issue aims to collect papers dealing with the role of NADPH oxidases in the regulation of cell function and physiology. Studies addressing signaling pathways or signaling proteins specifically regulated by NADPH oxidases will be also welcomed.

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 2200 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.
