Mitochondria produce cellular energy. Maintaining cellular energetics is an absolute requirement for cell and organ survival, and thus mitochondrial dysfunction is implicated in virtually every human disease. One of the prominent cell biological features of mitochondria is frequent change in shape and location, collectively termed mitochondrial dynamics. The subject of mitochondrial shape change, mainly mediated by fission and fusion, took the center stage of mitochondrial research 20 years ago. Despite its relatively short history, mitochondrial dynamics research has generated a great deal of insights into basic mechanisms, as well as pathophysiological roles, providing evidence that mitochondrial dynamics are an integral part of regulating cellular energetics.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to bring together the current states of mechanistic and physio–pathologic aspects in mitochondrial dynamics research. Mitochondrial dynamics has close connections to mitochondrial biogenesis, mitophagy, and cell death processes. In addition, it is involved in mitochondrial ROS production by regulating respiratory function, contributing to oxidative pathology in many disease conditions. This Special Issue invites original research and review articles on the subject of mitochondrial dynamics and all the related topics as indicated below.

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.
