Micronutrients and Oxidative Stress

Reactive oxygen and nitrogen species are now acknowledged to play a key role in maintaining cellular and tissue physiology. At the same time, though, they can activate redox-dependent, signal transduction pathways involved in the development of a wide range of inflammatory and degenerative pathologies. Along these lines, a plethora of micronutrients with peculiar reducing properties have been recently shown to regulate cellular homeostasis effectively. First considered ‘health-promoting’ by virtue of their radical-scavenging activity and/or direct antioxidant effects on cellular biomolecules, such compounds are now believed to interfere with cellular signalling by intercepting reactive species at the level of critical redox-dependent pathways. Contributions are invited from investigators worldwide in the form of reviews or original research articles on the anti-oxidative effects and mechanisms through which micronutrients exert a positive impact on human health.
