Differences between red blood cells and other animal cells?
Red blood cells do not have a nucleus or many of the organelles found in other animal cells. ...

What organelles are found in a red blood cell?
If you are talking about mammalian red blood cells - then the answer is that they have *no* organelles except their plasma membrane, and a network of supporting cytoskeleton) The erythrocytes of all other vertebrates *do* retain their nuclei, however. ...
Why red blood cells in humans does not use oxygen?
Red blood cells carry oxygen but don't use it. The cell is so packed with hemoglobin that it doesn't have space for any organelles including a nucleus. ...
Asked in Biology
Why the endoplasmic reticulum is absent in red blood cells?
There are no organelles in red blood cells (RBCs) since there is no room for them. Once the molecule called hemoglobin fills the cell all other structure are lost. ...
Asked in Cell Biology (cytology)
How does the cell doctrine contradict with a mature red blood cell?
Red blood cells are considered cells, but they lack all organelles. Red blood cells cannot divide or replicate like other cells of the body. The blood's red color is due to the spectral properties of the hemic iron ion the hemoglobin. Each human red blood cell is packed with approximately 270 million hemoglobin biomolecules. ...
Asked in Genetics
What is a cell called that does not contain a nucleus?
A cell that does not contain a nucleus is bacteri. Mature red blood cells also lack a nucleus. eukaryotic cells do not have a nucleus or any other organelles. Prokaryotic cells are the opposite and have a nucleus organelles. ...
Asked in Cell or Plasma Membranes
Plasma membranes that have been isolated from red blood cell are not contaminted by internal cell membane?
Plasma membranes isolated from a red blood cell will not be contaminated with internal cell membrane (i.e. membrane from cell organelles - small structures found within cells) because red blood cells do not contain any organelles, so there will be no 'internal membrane' to contaminate. ...
