Apop­tosis is a ­strictly reg­u­lated pro­cess for the ­removal of unnec­es­sary, ­aged or dam­aged ­cells and an alter­a­tion in the con­trol of apop­totic ­cell ­death can ­entail ­cancer, auto­im­mune dis­eases, ­immune defi­ciency and degen­er­a­tive dis­or­ders. ­This ­article ­briefly ­reviews the ­main mor­pho­log­ical and bio­chem­ical ­aspects of apop­totic ­cell ­death and ­describes sev­eral ­flow cytom­etry ­methods ­which can be ­used to ­follow ­changes ­during the apop­totic cas­cade and to quan­tify the ­number of apop­totic ­cells.
