Special Issue "Sulfur Compounds and Human Health"
A special issue of Molecules (ISSN 1420-3049).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2019).
Interests: the identification of novel sulphur compounds and the exploration of how these influence cell signalling networks in mammalian cells; how sulphur rich dietary plants promote healthy ageing in human systems; gaseous signalling molecules
Interests: drug discovery & developments from natural resources
Sulphur compounds are widely distributed in nature with many acting on cell signalling systems in human cells and tissues. New biochemical properties for these compounds are often described in the literature and the identification of new sulphur species common place. Many of these molecules are promising drug candidates, are potential functional food ingredients, are potential targets in plant breeding programmes to enhance levels, or as chemical tools that can be used to manipulate human sulphur metabolic networks. It is only now that we are beginning to understand the true impact of these compounds on human health via their ability to influence important cell signalling systems linked to health.
This Special Issue welcomes original research and reviews of literature on all aspects of the sulphur compounds and human health.

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. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
