Disassembly of apoptotic cells into smaller fragments (a form of extracellular vesicle called apoptotic bodies) can facilitate removal of apoptotic debris and intercellular communication. However, the mechanism underpinning this process is unclear. While observing monocytes undergoing apoptosis by time-lapse microscopy, we discovered a new type of membrane protrusion that resembles a 'beads-on-a-string' structure. Strikingly, the 'beads' are frequently sheared off the 'string' to form apoptotic… CONTINUE READING
