The membrane blebbing is considered to be a specific pattern of apoptosis that is due to a deep cytoskeleton rearrangement, resulting in alterations of cell shape and organelles distribution as will be illustrated later in TEM micrographs. Furthermore, cell-mediated, drug response is dependent on the cellular characteristic and the drug action.
