We screened small molecules to identify two compounds, which we named RSL3 and RSL5, that have increased lethality in the presence of oncogenic RAS. Counter screening with biologically active compounds defined aspects of the mechanism of action for RSL3 and...

In cancer cells the small compounds erastin and RSL3 promote a novel type of cell death called ferroptosis, which requires iron-dependent accumulation of lipid reactive oxygen species. Here we assessed the contribution of lipid peroxidation activity of lipoxygenases (LOX) to...

Redox mechanisms play an important role in the control of various signaling pathways. Here, we report that Second mitochondrial activator of caspases (Smac) mimetic-induced cell death is regulated by redox signaling. We show that RSL3, a glutathione (GSH) peroxidase (GPX)...

Ferroptosis is a form of regulated cell death that is triggered by iron accumulation and lipid peroxidation. Although plasma membrane injuries represent an important event in cell death, the impact of membrane repair mechanisms on ferroptosis remains unidentified. Here, we...
