As we are aware, nitric oxide (NO) (its redox-related products-NOx) and hydrogen sulfide (H2S) are important signaling molecules produced in the body, playing major roles in the function as well as dysfunction of the nervous system, immune system, and circulatory system. In the cellular milieu, NO and H2S react with each other as well as with oxygen and other biomolecules to form both stable and unstable derivatives that help mediate their physiological and pathological effects. However, the identity of the protein molecular target(s) of H2S as well as the structure of the protein-modulating H2S derivative(s) remains largely unknown. In addition, the crosstalk between NO- or H2S-mediated cellular processes is poorly understood.
We welcome original contributions to this Special Issue covering all aspects of NO(NOx) and H2S signaling and on the in vivo detection of NO(NOx), H2S and its derivatives; protein targets implicated in signaling; and the metabolism of NO(NOx) and H2S. Studies examining the use of H2S and related compounds in alleviating NO(NOx)-induced pathologies are especially welcome.

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. 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 2000 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.
