Necroptosis, a novel type of programmed cell death, is involved in ischemia-reperfusion-induced brain injury. Sirtuin 1 (Sirt1), as a well-known member of histone deacetylase class III, plays pivotal roles in inflammation, metabolism, and neuron loss in cerebral ischemia. We explored the relationship between Sirt1 and the necroptosis signaling pathway and its downstream events by administration of ex-527, as a selective and potent inhibitor of Sirt1, and necrostatin-1 (nec-1), as a necroptosis inhibitor, in an animal model of focal cerebral ischemia. Our data showed different patterns of sirt1 and necroptosis critical regulators, including receptor-interacting protein kinase 3 and mixed line..
