Special Issue "Molecular Toxicology of Free Radicals: From Molecules to Cells to Tissues"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2021.
Interests: antioxidant activity; plant phenolics; exercise; functional foods; toxicology; redox nutrition; antioxidant administration
Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Special Issue in Antioxidants: ROS and COVID
Special Issue in Veterinary Sciences: Agricultural By-Products in Animal Nutrition
This Special Issue will cover new developments in oxidative toxicology in the frame of the fragile interface that emerges under the involvement of physiological mechanisms that govern redox homeostasis from one side and free radical toxicity from the other. Recently, the use of redox biomarkers in the evaluation of the antioxidant profile, both in vitro and in vivo, has surfaced as a potential approach again. Although usually overlooked, recent scientific evidence indicates that redox biomarkers can become a useful tool with great translational potency in the field of redox biology.
Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:
- Biomarkers used for the evaluation of in vivo antioxidant mechanisms
- Biomarkers for assessing the antioxidant activity of plant compounds in vitro
- Estimation of redox status in an exercise context
- Antioxidant status in disease using redox biomarkers
- Estimation of redox status in aging
- Assessment of the antioxidant status of the host after insulted by pathogenic microorganisms

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
