How is a white blood cell different from a red blood cell?
Red blood cells (erythrocytes) and white blood cells (leukocytes) are very different. Red blood cells are round, lack a nucleus and function to carry oxygen throughout the body. White blood cells can be many different shapes, have a nucleus and function to detect and destroy invading pathogens.
the nerve cell is the white cell and it is white but it doesnt care as much blood as the red blood cell does that's the difference. Also, the nerve cell is the white cell and it is white but the red blood carries blood. Wait, I think the nerve cell is the white cell is white. White Cell=Nerve Cell*white. Cell=Nerve/White =;)
If all cells in your body start out life with the same inherited information on how to build proteins then what caused the differences between a red blood cell and a white one Between a white blood?
White blood cells are very different that red blood cells. Red blood cells transport oxygen to tissues, white blood cells have the function of fighting off infections. Red blood cells also have no nucleus, white blood cells do, infact some even have multiple. There is only one type of red blood cell. There are many different types of white blood cells, each has a different function in adaptive and innate immunity.
There are different red blood cells. There is only one type of white blood cell. Correction: Actually, there is only one type of red blood cell, however platelets and plasma are included in the red blood cell make-up. There are five different type of white blood cells and they are: Neutrophils, Eosinophils, Basophils, Lymphocytes, and Monocytes. All five types of white blood cells help fight infection in their own way.
The biggest difference is that a red blood cell has no nucleus where as a white blood cell does. A red blood cell has no nucleus because it needs all the space inside the cell for the haemoglobin which is stored inside it and is the oxygen attrcting chemical. White blood cells can have either a bean shaped nucleus which would make it a lymphocyte or a double lobed nucleus which would make it a…
FBC counts the number of white blood cells; red blood cells and platelets. Most modern counters will differentiate the 5 types of white blood cells. A full blood counter will also measure the Haemoglobin levels, mean cell volume (average volume of red blood cell), red cell distribution width (a percentage indicating the different sizes of red blood cells), calculate mean cell haemoglobin (average haemoglobin per red blood cell), haematocrit (percentage of blood that is red…
