Receptor-interacting protein kinase (RIPK)-1 is involved in RIPK3-dependent and -independent signaling pathways leading to cell death and/or inflammation. Genetic ablation of ripk1 causes postnatal lethality, which was not prevented by deletion of ripk3, caspase-8, or fadd. However, animals that lack RIPK1, RIPK3, and either caspase-8 or FADD survived(More)
The activation of mixed lineage kinase-like (MLKL) by receptor-interacting protein kinase-3 (RIPK3) results in plasma membrane (PM) disruption and a form of regulated necrosis, called necroptosis. Here, we show that, during necroptosis, MLKL-dependent calcium (Ca2+) influx and phosphatidylserine (PS) exposure on the outer leaflet of the plasma membrane(More)
Necroptosis is a form of programmed necrotic cell death mediated by the kinase RIPK3 and its substrate MLKL. MLKL, which displays plasma membrane (PM) pore-forming activity upon phosphorylation, functions as the executioner during necroptosis. Thus, it was previously assumed that MLKL phosphorylation is the endpoint of the necroptotic signaling pathway.(More)
