Special Issue Information
Nrf2 is a multifunctional transcription factor which plays an important role in cytoprotective system. Enhancing Nrf2 activity has long been regarded as a promising way for the treatment of a set of diseases that appear to be mechanistically linked with oxidative stress. In addition, more and more evidence indicates that overactivation of Nrf2 plays an important role in tumour occurrence and malignant transformation. During the last decade, a growing body of research has focused on blocking NRF2 activity in cancer cells, attempting to disturb the redox balance, antagonize the oncogenic metabolism, and reverse the resistance to treatment. Thus, properly timed and fine-tuned manipulation of the Nrf2 signalling is critical for the development of clinical drugs.
This Special Issue aims to collect research articles and review papers dealing with all aspects of Nrf2. Papers describing the new findings about the biological function of Nrf2, the fresh clinical implications of Nrf2 targeting agents and the development of Nrf2-tageting therapeutic agents will be especially welcome. Profound review papers about the relevant fields are also favored.

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 2400 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.
