What is the function of RBC?
to transport oxygen all around the body.
Red blood cells (RBC) are roundly shaped and have an indent in the middle (like a donut) but no hole. The indent is to increase the surface area of the RBC, thus, making the RBC highly efficient. The function of a RBC is to carry oxygen and other needed nutrients to specific areas of the human body, also is certain parts of the body, carry waste from an area to the liver.
a RCB lacks cellular organelles because its main function is to transpor oxygen, and for this it contains hemoglobin. it is astimated that a RBC contains about 2 billion hemoglobin cells. to carry out the main funtion for which a RBC is made all its other organells are absent. A RBC on the other hand has a nucleus when it is formed but brfore entering the blood stream the RBC loses it. this is mainly…
if we consider the formation of RBCs Erythropoietin, produced by the kidneys, signals RBC formation in the red bone marrow is required. but if we consider the activation of rbc so haemoglobin is essential, in which haemoglobin consiats of single molecule so we can also say for the activation of rbc that:- IRON------>HAEMOGLOBIN------>RBC and RBC are produced as BY KIDNEY------->ERTHROPROTEIN------>RBC
