WHAT DOES RETICULOCYTE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

reticulocyte

Reticulocyte

Reticulocytes are immature red blood cells, typically composing about 1% of the red cells in the human body. Reticulocytes develop and mature in the red bone marrow and then circulate for about a day in the blood stream before developing into mature red blood cells. Like mature red blood cells, reticulocytes do not have a cell nucleus. They are called reticulocytes because of a reticular network of ribosomal RNA that becomes visible under a microscope with certain stains such as new methylene blue.

Definition of reticulocyte in the English dictionary

The definition of reticulocyte in the dictionary is an immature red blood cell containing a network of granules or filaments.
