Titolo della Special Issue Novel Antibiotics and Novel Modes of Action to Fight Infectious Diseases in Antimicrobial Resistance Era
Breve descrizione della Special issue (max 200 caratteri in inglese) This Special Issue provides a platform for exchanging and updating our new insights into the discovery of novel antibiotics from various yet unexplored and underexplored sources to defeat infectious diseases in the antimicrobial resistance era and the hidden modes of action of currently available bioactive molecules using advanced in silico screening approaches and/or lab-based techniques. All types of articles falling within the scope of the above research areas are welcome.

Titolo della Special Issue Regulation and Functions of RNA Exonucleases in Gram Negative Bacteria
Breve descrizione della Special issue (max 200 caratteri in inglese) RNA endo- and exonucleases (collectively referred to as ribonucleases, RNases) play fundamental roles in all kinds of cells.
Indeed, they modulate the intracellular concentration of different RNA transcripts, thus contributing to gene expression regulation.
Moreover, they provide the cells with mature and functional RNA molecules and contribute to recycling nucleotides.
The aim of this Special Issue is to advance the knowledge of hydrolytic and phosphorolytic exoribonucleases (exoRNases) of Gram-negative bacteria by collecting research articles, short communications, and reviews about their regulation and function.
Extensive studies performed in the last four decades have allowed us to understand the fundamental aspects of the function of these enzymes, of their interaction with other cellular factors, and of the processes in which they are involved.
However, important questions remain about the regulation of the expression of exoRNase-encoding genes and of the intracellular localization of exoRNases.
Unclear are also the rules and mechanisms governing their specificity and activity so that they can extensively digest some RNAs and process others by accurately removing precise RNA portions.
Moreover, RNA processing and degradation have mainly been studied in a few model species.
It would be important to enlarge the analysis to other bacteria to get a more comprehensive understanding of the conservation and divergence of these processes in the branches of the bacterial phylogenetic tree.

Titolo della Special Issue Natural Antimicrobials: Potential Applications for Improving Food Safety
Breve descrizione della Special issue (max 200 caratteri in inglese) Food products can be contaminated by a variety of pathogenic microorganisms, causing severe illness and foodborne outbreaks worldwide. Some of these microorganisms emerged during the last two decades, partly due to the increased consumption of ready-to-eat foods. Therefore, it is extremely important to implement new strategies to be used alone or in combination with existing ones, capable of inhibiting or delaying the proliferation of pathogenic and spoilage microorganisms present in food. Chemical additives have been widely used, but they are not well accepted by consumers because the safety of their use is being questioned. For this reason, natural preservatives are considered a safer alternative that satisfy consumer preferences. This Special Issue addresses cutting edge research and review articles related to recent developments on the use of natural antimicrobials to improving food safety.
