Etymology: Gk, erythros + poiein, to make
the process of erythrocyte production in the bone marrow involving the maturation of a nucleated precursor into a hemoglobin-filled, nucleus-free erythrocyte that is regulated by erythropoietin, a hormone produced by the kidney.

erythropoiesis

the formation of red blood cells (erythrocytes) from stem cells in the bone marrow. Regulated by the hormone erythropoietin from the kidneys, where increased secretion is stimulated by reduced oxygen tension in the blood; a recombinant human form is used therapeutically to treat some types of anaemia.

hemopoietic production which does not result in the functional release of new erythrocytes.
