What is the primary differences in apoptosis and necrosis?
Natural: Yes No
Effects: Beneficial Detrimental
Apoptosis is the process of programmed cell death (PCD) that may occur in multicellular organisms. Programmed cell death involves a series of biochemical events leading to a characteristic cell morphology and death.
Necrosis is the premature death of cells and living tissue. Necrosis is caused by external factors, such as infection, toxins or trauma. This is in contrast to apoptosis, which is a naturally occurring cause of cellular death.
Seperate fingers in embryo development and prevent tumor (homeostatis between cell death rate and mitosis rate) these intercellular content damage neighbouring cells cause inflammation.
definition: programmed cell death the cell or tissue damage due to external factors.
process: membrane blebbing, shrinkage of cell, nuclear collapse (nuclear fragmentation, chromatin condensation, chromosomal DNA fragmentation), appoptopic body formation. Then, engulf by white blood cells
Dying cell swells and burst,releasing the intercellular content.
