Programmed cell death


Programmed cell death is also called as apoptosis and refers to the process of aging of cells after certain time. Red blood cells also have definite life span and are subjected to programmed cell death after completion of their life span. The RBCs of blood have a life span of 120 days after which they undergo programmed cell death to keep their total count constant in blood.

I took the test the answer (for sure) is c: programmed cell death. Good Luck!
