[erith′rōpō·ē′sis]
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. Compare erythrogenesis. See also erythrocyte, erythropoietin, hemoglobin, leukopoiesis. erythropoietic, adj.

erythropoiesis

Red cell production.

erythropoiesis

the formation of blood cells in bone marrow.

Erythropoiesis

The process through which new red blood cells are created; it begins in the bone marrow.
Mentioned in: Porphyrias

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.

n red blood cell production that occurs in bone marrow and involves maturation of nucleated precursors into erythrocytes regulated by the hormone erythropoietin produced in the kidneys.

erythropoiesis (ərith´rōpoiē´sis),

n the process in which red blood cells are formed.

erythropoiesis

the formation of erythrocytes. Called also hematopoiesis.

balanced erythropoiesis
balanced progressive development of the nucleus and the cytosol of the erythrocytes.
ineffective erythropoiesis
hemopoietic production which does not result in the functional release of new erythrocytes.
