Abstract

Necroptosis is a type of programmed cell death with necrotic morphology, occurring in a variety of biological processes, including inflammation, immune response, embryonic development and metabolic abnormalities. The current nomenclature defines necroptosis as cell death mediated by signal transduction from receptor‑interacting serine/threonine kinase (RIP) 1 to RIP3 (hereafter called RIP1/RIP3). However, RIP3‑dependent cell death would be a more precise definition of necroptosis. RIP3 is indispensable for necroptosis, while RIP1 is not consistently involved in the signal transduction. Notably, deletion of RIP1 even promotes RIP3‑mediated necroptosis under certain conditions. Necroptosis was previously thought as an alternate process of cell death in case of apoptosis inhibition. Currently, necroptosis is recognized to serve a pivotal role in regulating various physiological processes. Of note, it mediates a variety of human diseases, such as ischemic brain injury, immune system disorders and cancer. Targeting and inhibiting necroptosis, therefore, has the potential to be used for therapeutic purposes. To date, research has elucidated the suppression of RIP1/RIP3 via effective inhibitors and highlighted their potential application in disease therapy. The present review focused on the molecular mechanisms of RIP1/RIP3‑mediated necroptosis, explored the functions of RIP1/RIP3 in necroptosis, discussed their potential as a novel therapeutic target for disease therapy, and provided valuable suggestions for further study in this field.
