  • n. Plural form of erythroblast.


Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • In contrast, acute erythroleukemia is a cancer of the young red blood cells, called erythroblasts, and acute megakaryoblastic leukemia is a leukemia involving the platelet-forming cells called megakaryoblasts.

    Leukemia - Diagnosis and Treatment

  • Among the marrow cells may be seen smaller cells, which possess a slightly pinkish hue; these are the erythroblasts or normoblasts, from which the red corpuscles of the adult are derived, and which may be regarded as descendants of the nucleated colored corpuscles of the embryo.

  • In those studies glycophorin and the transferrin receptor CD71 have been identified as the reference molecules of erythroblasts.

  • Thus, the viability of the erythroblasts is preserved, and this is of great importance because these progenitor cells are the precursors to the mature erythrocytes.

  • EPO stimulates the production of mature erythrocytes by mediating the survival, proliferation and differentiation of unipotent erythroid progenitor cells, called erythroblasts.

  • When this happens the body cannot produce healthy stem cells (produced in the crypts of the small intestine) that produce healthy erythroblasts that produce healthy blood cells and then healthy brain and body cells.

  • Recent reports demonstrate the feasibility of expressing either factor IX (FIX) or factor VIII (FVIII) in erythroblasts and platelets using lineage-restricted vectors, resulting in effective treatments in mouse models of hemophilia.

  • Tissue-specific deletion of the BCL11A gene in the adult mice (8-10 weeks old) resulted in an increase of more than 1,000-fold in gamma-globin gene expression in the bone marrow erythroblasts (the precursors to red blood cells) of the experimental mice in comparison to control mice.
