Several non-apoptotic regulated cell death pathways have been recently reported. Necroptosis, a form of necrotic-regulated cell death, is characterized by the involvement of receptor-interacting protein kinases and/or the pore-forming mixed lineage kinase domain-like protein. Recent evidence suggests a key role for lipidic molecules in the regulation of necroptosis. The purpose of this mini-review is to outline the regulation of necroptosis by sphingolipids and phospholipids.
