Special Issue in Toxins: Remediation Strategies for Mycotoxin in Animal Feed
Mineral elements, such as calcium, copper, zinc, iron, magnesium, manganese, selenium, and phosphorus, play important roles in numerous physiological and biochemical processes in all vertebrates. Their inclusions in diets are necessary, considering that most animals derive these minerals mainly from diets. However, excess intake of minerals can be toxic to animals and adversely influence growth performance, antioxidant responses, and metabolism. Thus, a thorough understanding of mineral nutrition in vertebrates is of fundamental importance.
Recently, many important advances have been made, which are involved in the uptake, transport, and homeostatic regulation of mineral elements in animals, and other studies have revealed the effects and mechanisms of mineral elements influencing antioxidant responses and metabolism. In particular, many mineral-element-induced metabolic dysfunctions are closely related to the dysregulation of antioxidant responses and the occurrence of oxidative stress. Therefore, the investigation into the underlying mechanism of mineral-element-induced changes of antioxidant responses and metabolism, and their interaction will deepen our understanding into mineral nutrition, which preserves health or prevents the occurrence of disease.
In this Special Issue, we aim to collate papers dealing with the interaction of mineral elements with antioxidant responses and metabolism across vertebrates, including humans and terrestrial and aquatic species. The focus will be on studies that elucidate underlying molecular mechanisms of such interactions, and descriptive studies will not be accepted.

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.
