Necroptosis-independent signaling by the RIP kinases in inflammation

Recent advances have identified a signaling cascade involving receptor interacting protein kinase 1 (RIPK1), RIPK3 and the pseudokinase mixed lineage kinase domain-like (MLKL) that is crucial for induction of necroptosis, a non-apoptotic form of cell death. RIPK1–RIPK3–MLKL-mediated necroptosis has been attributed to cause many inflammatory diseases through… CONTINUE READING
