As with all aerobic organisms, plants benefit from oxygen while being faced with the challenge of maintaining appropriate redox conditions for their physiology and development in an oxidizing atmosphere. Redox biology and the complex associated network of redox-sensitive factors are now recognized as important in cellular regulation, with reactive molecular species (RMS), such as reactive oxygen/nitrogen species (ROS/RNS) and hydrogen sulfide (H2S), playing crucial roles in responses to adverse environmental cues. It is now proven that ROS/RNS are a necessary part of subcellular and intercellular communication in plants and that some of their signaling functions require ROS metabolizing systems, such as ascorbate and glutathione-related. Furthermore, cysteine-based redox modifications, including sulfenylation, nitrosation, glutathionylation and persulfidation, are proposed to function in redox signaling as reversible molecular switches. However, their signaling networks and transduction mechanisms remain incomplete.
This Special Issue will focus on studies that highlight recent advances in the mechanism of redox signal transduction in plants, including original research articles and reviews aimed at understanding the molecular mechanisms and physiological roles of RMS and their interacting systems under stress and nonstress conditions.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
