Etymologies

from The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, 4th Edition

[reticul(um) + –cyte.]

Examples

  • We assumed that the same mechanism that is involved in differentiation and maturation of the reticulocyte is also involved in the removal of "naturally occurring" mutant abnormal hemoglobins that are synthesized in different hemoglobinopathies, such as thalassemias and sickle cell anemia, and also in the destruction of the amino acid analogs

    Aaron Ciechanover - Autobiography

  • A later stage of the cell known as a reticulocyte, is what finally develops into an erythrocyte.

    undefined

  • The progenitor cell loses its nucleus, and most of its intracellular membranes are degraded; the now non-nucleated form of the cell, termed a reticulocyte, then loses its ribosomes, thus preventing any further synthesis of haemoglobin.

  • The model system that was chosen to study proteolysis was degradation of abnormal hemoglobin in the reticulocyte which is the terminally differentiating red blood cell.

    Aaron Ciechanover - Autobiography

  • "precursor" cell called a reticulocyte, the cell ejects many structures, such as mitochodria and the nucleus (the sac that contains the cell's genes).
