Nitric oxide (NO) and hydrogen sulfide (H2S) are two gasotransmitters endogenously generated in plant cells. These molecules share diverse plant functions and participate in a wide range of physiological processes including seed germination, root architecture, plant growth and development, stomatal movement, and senescence or fruit ripening among others, as well as in the mechanism of response against environmental stresses. Both gasotransmitters have families of related molecules designated reactive nitrogen species (RNS) and reactive sulfur species (RSS). Their mechanism of action is through posttranslational modifications such as S-nitrosation, nitration, or persulfidation affecting the redox status and function of the target proteins. Thus, NO and H2S mediate several signaling networks and are key elements in biochemistry and physiology of plants.
The present Special Issue of Antioxidants aims to provide the most recent findings about the function of these two gasotransmitters in higher plants and it is opened to different types of manuscripts including original research papers, perspectives, or reviews where either NO, H2S, or related molecules could be involved at biochemical or physiological levels.

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.
