Reduction-oxidation reactions produce reactive species that regulate cellular behavior, predominantly by posttranslationally modifying cysteine residues on target proteins. Research Articles, as well as a Perspective and Review in this issue, provide insight into the pathological potential of reactive oxygen species (ROS), as well as the important physiological signals that the reactive molecules transmit and the biological processes that they regulate.
