Receptor interacting protein kinases (RIPKs) are a family of serine/threonine and tyrosine kinases with important roles in inflammation and innate immunity. RIPK1 and RIPK3 are critical for the activation of the necroptotic cell death pathway by stimuli such as TNF, interferons and Toll-like receptor ligands [1-3], and they have been implicated in pathologies including stroke, myocardial infarction, retinal injuries, lethal systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS), chronic gut and skin inflammation, and acute pancreatitis.
