Necrostatin-1 (NEC-1) is widely used in disease models to examine the contribution of receptor-interacting protein kinase (RIPK) 1 in cell death and inflammation. We studied three Nec-1 analogues: Nec-1, the active inhibitor of RIPK1, inactive Nec-1 (Nec-1i), its inactive variant, and stable Nec-1 (Nec-1s), its most stable variant. We report that Nec-1 is identical to methyl-thiohydantoin-tryptophan, an inhibitor of the potent immunomodulatory enzyme indolamine 2,3-dioxygenase (IDO).

Both Nec-1 and Nec-1i inhibited human IDO, but Nec-1 did not, as predicted by molecular modelling. Therefore, Nec-1s is a more specific RIPK1 inhibitor that lacks the targeting effect of IDO. Next, although Nec-1i was approximately 100 times less effective than Nec-1 in inhibiting human RIPK1 kinase activity in vitro, it was only 10 times less potent than Nec-1 and Nec-1s in a necroptosis assay. in mice and became even equipotent at high concentrations.

Along the same lines, in vivo, high doses of Nec-1, Nec-1i and Nec-1s equally well-prevented tumour necrosis factor (TNF) -induced mortality, excluding the use of NEC-1i as an inactive control. Paradoxically, low doses of Nec-1 or Nec-1i, but not Nec-1s, even sensitized mice to TNF-induced mortality. Importantly, Nec-1s did not show this low dose toxicity, again emphasizing the preferred use of Nec-1 in vivo. Our findings have important implications for the interpretation of Nec-1-based data in experimental disease models.
