Caption: Human neutrophil cells undergoing apoptosis (programmed cell death), timelapse microscope footage. Apoptotic cell death is controlled so that there is no damage to tissues, and the contents of the cells are recycled or disposed of correctly. In apoptosis, the cells become static and compact, then blebs (buds) form on the cell membrane, before the cell breaks up into separate vesicles called apoptotic bodies. These are then digested by macrophage cells.
