There is DNA fragmentation; organelles remain viable. Thus in comparison with necrotic cells, there is minimal release of injurious products, although there may still be a fibrotic reaction. Equilibrium within normal tissue depends upon the mitotic rate equalling the rate of apoptosis. Pathological processes can alter the cellular mechanisms involved in apoptosis, leading to disease [25]. Increased apoptosis affecting cholangiocytes may lead to ductopenia.

Rarely, pale stools occur in very severe bilirubin glucuronyltransferase deficiency (Chapter 12). Bilirubin cannot be detected in the urine of normal subjects or in patients with unconjugated hyperbilirubinaemia. In cholestatic patients, a small fraction of the conjugated bilirubin in plasma is dialysable and filtered by the glomerulus, some is reabsorbed by the tubules, and the remainder gives the dark colour to the urine. ‘Dipsticks’ are commercially available, easy to use and give satisfactory results for the detection of conjugated bilirubin in urine.
