Special Issue in Biomedicines: The Reactive Oxygen Species Signaling Pathway: Function and Regulation
A free radical can be defined as any molecular species capable of independent existence that contains an unpaired electron in an atomic orbital. Many abiotic stresses induce the overproduction of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in humans and animals. As highly reactive and toxic species, they cause damage to DNA, proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids, thus leading to oxidative stress. This oxidative stress induces damage to cells and tissues, resulting in a large number of diseases. Several compounds with antioxidant properties could neutralize the effects of ROS and prevent the development of many inflammatory pathologies. A number of scientific studies report the varied health benefits of antioxidant supplementation in processes such as inflammation, stress, aging, apoptosis, and neurological diseases.
This Special Issue will focus on the role of bioactive components from food waste in the treatment of various human diseases and the possible molecular pathways involved. Additionally, the Special Issue will welcome original in vivo and in vitro reviews and studies that provide evidence of the welfare effects of antioxidant factors.

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.
