Redox systems, which are controlled by the exogenous or endogenous signals that govern the life of cells, tissues, and the entire body, have received the interest of scientists in different disciplines, from basic science to scientific applications. Indeed, while adequate levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS) are essential for sustaining cell proliferation and survival, alterations of redox homeostasis may bring about cell dysfunction and death. Under physiological conditions, therefore, a strict balance between the generation and disposal of ROS ensures the proper functioning of redox-sensitive signalling proteins. Along these lines, understanding the mechanisms underlying cellular redox homeostasis may help us to develop new therapeutical strategies to counteract the development of a wide range of redox-dependent pathologies, including cardiovascular, neurodegenerative, and inflammatory-based diseases and cancer.
The aim of this Special Issue is to bring together recent research, in the form of either original research papers or reviews, on the activity and control of redox-regulated cell systems in physiological processes and pathological conditions. These can include both in vitro and in vivo studies aiming to explore molecular mechanisms as well as cell and body responses. In addition, the role of phytochemicals and xenobiotics in the control of redox-dependent pathophysiological conditions will be considered.

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. Oxygen is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
