Antioxidant systems exist in cells to protect them against reactive oxygen species (ROS) that damage major biomolecules. Microorganisms to fight ROS are equipped with powerful enzymatic (e.g., superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase, and peroxidase) and non-enzymatic (e.g., glutathione) antioxidants to prevent oxidative damage to cells. The microbial world offers great antioxidant potential because of the enormous diversity of microorganisms that colonize different environments ranging from humans to extreme ecological niches. In addition, microbes offer a source of interest for innovative biotechnologies in this field.
This Special Issue focuses on the molecular strategies adopted by microorganisms to combat oxidative stress and the possible biotechnological application. All researchers working in the field are cordially invited to contribute original research articles or reviews to this Special Issue.Dr. Danila Limauro

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2900 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.
