Over the last two decades, significant advances have been made in our understanding of the role of redox systems in controlling cell signalling in both physiological and pathological settings. This has been driven by both the identification of relevant signal transduction cascades and the development of more specific tools to assess redox signalling at the levels of oxidants, reductants, and specific cellular targets. However, much remains to be discovered, including the regulation of oxidant generation in response to physiological stimuli, how the selective oxidation of target proteins occurs, and how redox signalling interfaces with more established signalling paradigms such as phosphorylation/dephosphorylation and ubiquitylation/deubiquitylation.
This Special Issue will publish original research papers and reviews on aspects of redox signalling that relate to the physiological production of reactive oxidants, specific post-translational modifications that occur and how these can be monitored, the relationship between redox signalling and other signal transduction pathways, the involvement of redox signalling in disease, and the therapeutic targeting of redox signalling pathways.

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.
