Apoptosis is the process of programmed cell death that may occur in multicellular organisms. Biochemical events lead to characteristic cell changes (morphology) and death. These changes include blebbing, loss of cell membrane asymmetry and attachment, change in mitochondrial potential, cell shrinkage, nuclear fragmentation, chromatin condensation, and chromosomal DNA fragmentation.
Charecteristic cell changes can be used to monitor apoptosis:
