Microalgae, a diverse group of photosynthetic microorganisms, have emerged as a rich source of novel compounds with potent antioxidant properties. These microalgae-derived antioxidants hold immense promise in unraveling new avenues for maintaining redox homeostasis and combating oxidative stress-related diseases. This Special Issue, titled "Recent Green Advances: Exploring Microalgae's Antioxidant Potential for Health and Wellness" aims to provide a comprehensive platform for researchers to share their latest findings and insights into the exciting world of microalgae-derived antioxidants.
Understanding the mechanisms underlying the antioxidant activities of microalgae and elucidating the unique compounds responsible for their redox-regulating effects are of paramount importance. This Special Issue invites researchers to contribute original research articles, reviews, and perspectives that explore the diverse array of novel compounds derived from microalgae and shed light on their mechanisms of action for maintaining cellular redox balance.
We welcome contributions on the isolation, identification, and characterization of novel microalgae-derived antioxidants, as well as investigations into their interactions with cellular components and signaling pathways. Moreover, research articles addressing the bioavailability, stability, and delivery systems of microalgae-derived antioxidants are encouraged, with the aim of maximizing their therapeutic potential.
By harnessing the collective expertise of researchers from multidisciplinary fields, including microbiology, biotechnology, biochemistry, pharmacology, and biomedicine, this Special Issue will contribute to the advancement of knowledge and the translation of microalgae-derived antioxidants into practical applications.
We invite scientists and scholars to share their groundbreaking research and valuable insights in this Special Issue, as we collectively unveil the hidden potential of microalgae-derived antioxidants and unravel the mechanisms underlying their contributions to redox homeostasis. Together, let us pave the way for the development of innovative strategies for antioxidant therapy and disease prevention.
