calcium activated phospholipid scrambling +   
cellular component disassembly involved in execution phase of apoptosis +   
negative regulation of execution phase of apoptosis +   
phosphatidylserine exposure on apoptotic cell surface +   
A phospholipid scrambling process that results in the appearance of phosphatidylserine on the outer leaflet of the plasma membrane of an apoptotic cell, which acts as an 'eat-me' signal for engulfing cells. Phosphatidylserine is exposed on the apoptotic cell surface by a phospholipid scramblase activity.
