  • CFU-Eos
    CFU-Eo is a colony forming unit that gives rise to eosinophils.
  • CFU-Meg
    CFU-Meg is a colony forming unit.
  • Myeloblast
    The myeloblast is a unipotent stem cell, which will differentiate into one of the effectors of the granulocyte series.
  • Promyelocyte
    A promyelocyte (or progranulocyte) is a granulocyte precursor, developing from the myeloblast and developing into the myelocyte.
  • Red blood cell
    Red blood cells (RBCs), also called erythrocytes, are the most common type of blood cell and the vertebrate organism's principal means of delivering oxygen (O2) to the body tissues—via blood flow through the circulatory system.
  • Osteoclast
    An osteoclast (from the Greek words for "bone" (ὀστέον), and "broken" (κλαστός)) is a type of bone cell that breaks down bone tissue.
  • Reticulocyte
    Reticulocytes are immature red blood cells, typically composing about 1% of the red blood cells in the human body.
  • Zinc protoporphyrin
    Zinc protoporphyrin (ZPP) is a compound found in red blood cells when heme production is inhibited by lead and/or by lack of iron.
  • CFU-GM
    CFU-GM (or "GMP", for "granulocyte-macrophage progenitor") is a colony forming unit.
  • Monoblast
    Monoblasts are normally found in bone marrow and do not appear in the normal peripheral blood.
  • CFU-GEMM
    CFU-GEMM is a colony forming unit that generates myeloid cells.
  • Proerythroblast
    A proerythroblast (or rubriblast, or pronormoblast) is the earliest of four stages in development of the normoblast.
  • Cigar cell
    Cigar cells (also referred to as pencil cells) are red blood cells that are cigar or pencil shaped on Peripheral blood smear.
  • Blood cell
    ("Blood Cells" redirects here. For the journal formerly known as Blood Cells, see Blood Cells, Molecules and Diseases.)("Hemocyte" redirects here. For invertebrate immune system cells, see Hemocyte (invertebrate immune system cell).) A blood cell, also called a haematopoietic cell, hemocyte, or hematocyte, is a cell produced through hematopoiesis and found mainly in the blood.
  • CFU-Mast
    CFU-Mast is a colony forming unit.
