Special Issue "Post-Translational Protein Modifications in Oxidative Stress"
A special issue of Antioxidants (ISSN 2076-3921).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2019)
Numerous post translational protein modifications play crucial roles in the cellular redox balance and are known to be implicated in many diseases. Some of the most well-known modifications are induced by reactive oxygen and nitrogen species, which generates a wide range of adducts that preferentially target cysteine thiols. Oxygen derived modifications include sulfenylation (SOH), formation of sulfinic acid (SO2H) and sulfonic acid (SO3H) while S-nitrosylation covers thiol adduct formation by nitrogen oxide. In addition, there are many more modifications, i.e., S- and N-homocysteinylation, S-glutathionylation, including protein carbonylation, which are known either to deregulate redox state or to be of importance for maintaining cellular homeostasis. Not only endogenous radicals and compounds cause protein modifications associated with oxidative stress, but also exogenous compounds from food products such as sulfites can potentially play a significant role.
In this Special Edition of Antioxidants, we invite you to submit your most recent research findings or a review article. The aim of this Issue is to consolidate up-to-date research and knowledge on post-translational modifications associated with oxidative stress. Of interest are the development of new approaches and applications of already well-known methods to determine the role and significance of these modifications in disease.

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 550 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.
