This paper describes a complicated way how the glycoepitops’ alterations on a surface of dying cells allow investigators to decipher specific mechanisms underlying cell restructuring at apoptosis. These glycoepitops are important at removal of fragments of dying cells from the body, which can be a cause of formation of the auto-antibodies.

Key words: apoptosis, glicoepitops, plasma membrane, microvesicles, phagocytosis.
