Caption: Apoptosis. 2-photon fluorescence light micrograph of a cultured cell (centre) undergoing apoptosis, or programmed cell death. It is surrounded by healthy cells. DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) is blue, tubulin protein, which makes up microtubules, is red and Golgi bodies are green. Apoptosis occurs when a cell becomes old or damaged. The cell becomes spherical as its cytoskeleton, which holds cell shape, is digested, and blebs, or vesicles, form on its surface. Eventually the cell breaks into several vesicles, now known as apoptotic bodies, and is phagocytosed (engulfed and digested) by specialist cells.

Release details: Model release not required. Property release not required.
