erythropoiesis

[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. Also called erythrocytopoiesis, erythrogenesis. See also erythrocyte, erythropoietin, hemoglobin, leukopoiesis. erythropoietic, adj.

erythropoiesis

 [ĕ-rith″ro-poi-e´sis]
the formation of erythrocytes; called also erythrogenesis. adj., adj erythropoiet´ic.

erythropoiesis (i·rith·rō·poiˑ·ē·sis),

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.

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.

The 37-year-old Piepoli won the 10th stage of the race in the Pyrenees, but in October the French Anti-Doping Agency announced that the Italian had tested positive for CERA (Continuous Erythropoiesis Receptor Activator) -- the new generation of EPO -- in two re-tested samples from the Tour.
