Apoptosis, conceptual image. Computer artwork showing an apoptotic cell (central shape) with blebs (round). Apoptosis is the process of programmed cell death. Blebs are irregular bulges in the plasma membrane of a cell caused by localised decoupling of the cytoskeleton from the plasma membrane, which often happens during apoptosis.
