Hematopoietic ontogeny is characterized by distinct primitive and definitive erythroid lineages. Definitive erythroblasts mature and enucleate extravascularly and form a unique membrane skeleton, composed of spectrin, 4.1R-complex, and ankyrinR-complex components, to survive the vicissitudes of the adult circulation. However, little is known about the(More)
Primitive erythroblasts (precursors of red blood cells) enter vascular circulation during the embryonic period and mature while circulating. As a result, primitive erythroblasts constantly experience significant hemodynamic shear stress. Shear-induced deformation of primitive erythroblasts however, is poorly studied. In this work, we examined the(More)
