How would the process of red blood cell production be affected by constricting the arteries that supply blood to the kidneys?
The kidneys would pick up low RBC by detecting low 02. The kidneys would then stimulate epo production to make more RBC. This will in turn cause polycythemia (too much RBC). ...
Which is essential for formation of RBC?
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 ...

Difference between mature and immature redblood cell of human?
Red blood cells (RBCs) develop in the bone marrow. The biggest difference between an immature RBC and a mature one is that the immature RBC still has a nucleus, and a mature RBC has lost its nucleus. The nucleus is lost in the final stage of RBC development (when the cell is called a reticulocyte, right before it becomes a mature RBC). If you do a blood smear of a normal person, you should see no nucleated (ie immature) RBCs. If...
