About the book

The cell, which has been optimized for current conditions in the evolution process, has developed many mechanisms to adapt to changing environmental conditions. This adaptation mechanism in the cell is called homeostasis. Every cell needs the support of cellular components to maintain its vitality in a balanced way. Peroxisomes play a leading role in the fight against oxidative stress, which has recently become more and more popular and is one of the most vital compartments in the cell. Catalase, one of the oldest and most well-known actors of antioxidant defense, is located in the peroxisome. As it is known, catalase is an important enzyme that degrades hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) molecules into H2O and O2. If catalase and other components fail in their functions, H2O2 in the cell attacks all molecular forms. As a result, cellular homeostasis will be impaired and, in some cases, apoptosis will be inevitable. Even if apoptosis does not occur, DNA molecules are damaged excessively by oxidized molecules (such as H2O2), and mutations that can cause cancer to occur. Considering the current projection, it is very important to understand the peroxisome and its structural elements.

This book is intended to increase the depth of knowledge about peroxisome and to challenge the old and templated perspectives towards related phenomena.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Mia Vulovic

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
