Early, intermediate and late erythroblasts and reticulocytes were studied by electron microscopic morphometry. The volumes of mitochondria, Golgi zone and autophagosomes, as well as the surface areas of membranes of rough endoplasmic reticulum (RER) and of mitochondrial cristae and the numbers of ribosomes per unit volume cytoplasm were calculated. The results revealed 3 phases in erythroid maturation: (1) early and intermediate erythroblasts, (2) late erythroblasts, and (4) reticulocytes. The… CONTINUE READING
