The applications of naturally occurring compounds are very vast and diverse, covering many research areas, including the modulation of immunocompetent cells, drug discovery and delivery, nutrition, energy production, and environmental applications. One of the most interesting features of these molecules is that they may exert drug-like activities, although, in most cases, there are limited side effects, even when used at very high concentrations (e.g., histidine-containing peptides). Different naturally-occurring compounds have been studied both in vitro and in vivo, with the aim to investigate their therapeutic potential in counteracting oxidative stress and inflammation, two events involved in different diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, type 2 diabetes, cancer, and cardiovascular diseases. Submissions based on interdisciplinary studies involving the combination of two or more fields, such as biochemistry, cellular and molecular biology, medicinal chemistry, and microbiology, are strongly encouraged. The main aim of this Special Issue is to highlight the huge potential of natural compounds, possibly deciphering the specific cell protective pathways and/or mechanisms of action involved, modulated by these molecules.

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.
