Majima et al. were the first to report that reactive oxygen species (ROS) generated from mitochondria promote apoptosis (Majima et al., J Biol. Chem. 1998), while Itoh et al. described the function of the Nrf2-Keap1 intercellular signal for the first time (Itoh et al., Biochem. Biophys. Res. Commun. 1997, Itoh et al., Genes Dev. 1999). A recent study has described that ROS generated from mitochondria initiate cellular transduction in cytosol (Indo et al. Handb Exp Pharmacol. 2017). In this Special Issue, the further role of ROS and the subsequent intracellular signals, protein, and molecules’ transport-change will be clarified. The aim of this Special Issue is the establishment of cellular signaling and metabolism change based on mitochondrial ROS augmentation. Thus, the Special Issue explores the physiological and pathological new function of mitochondrial ROS.

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. Biomolecules 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 1800 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.
