Karyolysis in apoptosis
Someone added this:
"It is usually preceded by karyorrhexis and occurs mainly as a result of necrosis, while in apoptosis after karyorrhexis the nucleus usually dissolves into apoptotic bodies."
Could someone check the reference mentioned? I don't have access to it, but from what I've always heard I thought the "apoptotic bodies" were formed from the breakup of the cell itself, not the nucleus. mike4ty4 (talk) 09:28, 19 December 2009 (UTC)
