During programmed cell death (apoptosis), the doomed cell shrinks and is engulfed by its neighbours. Part of this process involves destruction of the nucleus. A factor involved in nuclear destruction has now been identified. Known as Acinus, it adds an extra level of complexity to what we know about digestion of nuclear DNA, because it seems to act without a DNA-digesting (DNase) activity.
