    Special Issue on Oxidative Stress


    Oxidative stress reflects an imbalance between the systemic manifestation of reactive oxygen species and a biological system's ability to readily detoxify the reactive intermediates or to repair the resulting damage. Disturbances in the normal redox state of cells can cause toxic effects through the production of peroxides and free radicals that damage all components of the cell, including proteins, lipids, and DNA. Oxidative stress from oxidative metabolism causes base damage, as well as strand breaks in DNA. Base damage is mostly indirect and caused by reactive oxygen species (ROS) generated. Further, some reactive oxidative species act as cellular messengers in redox signaling. Thus, oxidative stress can cause disruptions in normal mechanisms of cellular signaling.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on oxidative stress. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Chemical and biological effects
    • Production and consumption of oxidants
    • Oxidative stress and human disease
    • Aging process
    • Oxidative stress and cell damage
    • Metal catalysts  

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue – Oxidative Stress should be chosen during your submission.


    According to the following timetable:
