Where are agranular leukocytes formed?
Granular Leukocytes account for about 50-70% of all WBCs, and include neutrophils, eosinophils, and basophils. Agranular Leukocytes account for 25-35% of all WBCs. They include lymphocytes and monocytes. Apart from the difference in function regarding each individual type of white blood cell, the primary difference between granular and agranular leukocytes is that the former has visible granules, whereas the later does on have any noticeable granules.
Compare and contrast erythrocytes and leukocytes Be sure to include similarities and differences of structure and function?
Erythrocytes are larger than leukocytes. Erythrocytes have no nucleus while leukocytes have nucleus. Leukocytes remove and/ or destroys things that are considered "abnormal" in the body while erythrocytes carry oxygen to all body cells. Leukocytes are large round cells that do not contain hemoglobin while erythrocytes contain hemoglobin, are shaped as biconcave disks that bend, flex travel through narrow blood vessels and have a large surface to volume ratio. Erythrocytes and leukocytes are both classified…
