  1. Apoptosis is a programmed destruction of cells by their own hydrolytic enzymes; the process takes place in the lysosomes.

  3. The cells are programmed to die and then they send signals to their membranes, which inform macrophages to come dispose of them. The macrophages engulf the apoptotic cells, allowing for the recycling of certain molecules. All of the cell parts are recycled during apoptosis - all of the cellular molecules will be recycled after apoptosis.
