Terms & Properties

Concept Unique Identifier (CUI): C0035286

NCI Thesaurus Code: C12528  (see NCI Thesaurus info)

Semantic Type: Cell

NCIt Definition: Immature erythrocytes that have just undergone extrusion of their cell nucleus. They still contain some organelles that gradually decrease in number as the cells mature.

MSH Definition: Immature ERYTHROCYTES. In humans, these are ERYTHROID CELLS that have just undergone extrusion of their CELL NUCLEUS. They still contain some organelles that gradually decrease in number as the cells mature. RIBOSOMES are last to disappear. Certain staining techniques cause components of the ribosomes to precipitate into characteristic "reticulum" (not the same as the ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM), hence the name reticulocytes.

CSP Definition: immature erythrocytes showing a basophilic reticulum under vital staining; in humans, these are erythroid cells that have just undergone extrusion of their cell nucleus.

Synonyms & Abbreviations: (see Synonym Details)
Diffusely basophilic erythrocyte
Polychromatophilic erythrocyte
Reticulocyte (cell)
