APOPTOSIS: INTRODUCTION, MORPHOLOGIC CHANGES AND MECHANISM
Author: Sanketh DS, MDS
INTRODUCTION AND ETIOLOGY
Apoptosis, also called “programmed cell death” is the process where the cell regulates its own death through the production of certain enzymes. These enzymes cause degradation of nuclear and cytoplasmic DNA and the cell breaks into fragments called apoptotic bodies. Apoptotic bodies are then gobbled up by phagocytes.
