Quick Reference

Erythrocyte-producing cells found in fetal liver and bone marrow that take over the role of haematopoiesis from primitive erythroblasts of the yolk-sac at ~6 weeks of development. They are smaller than primitive erythroblasts, have a lower cytoplasmic/nuclear ratio and are CD36+. As they mature they extrude their nuclei.
