• Protein
  • Reticulocytes are a valuable tool for biologists who study protein translation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Scientists can collect reticulocytes from animals such as rabbits and extract the mRNA and translation enzymes to study protein translation in a cell-free, in vitro system, allowing greater control over the environment in which proteins are being synthesized. (wikipedia.org)
  • This problem was overcome in the 1960s by the use of reticulocytes in vertebrates, which produce large quantities of mRNA that are highly enriched in RNA encoding alpha- and beta-globin (the two major protein chains of hemoglobin). (wikipedia.org)
  • While there, they discovered that tiny amounts of glutathione inhibited protein synthesis in reticulocytes and that tiny amounts of RNA killed the synthesis altogether. (wikipedia.org)
  • reflects
  • Micronucleus (MN) formation in reticulocytes (RETs) reflects cytogenetic damage induced by clastogenic agents, such as ionizing radiation and alkylating agents, or by aneugenic agents, such as compounds that interfere with the mitotic spindle apparatus [ 1 - 3 ]. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • Procedure
  • A reticulocyte count is a safe procedure with minimal risks. (teenhealth.org)
  • Contract notice: Open procedure in the aggregate for the acquisition by renting an analytical system for this examination including blood count of reticulocyte count online, including reagents, calibrators, controls, monitoring, and management system dedicated to interfacciamneto lis needed to foundation irccs national cancer institute, (national leader), ao hospital circle of melegnano, all~a.

  • Method
  • 2. A method according to claim 1 wherein the harvesting step involves sequential sedimentation steps of Rouleaux bodies in which reticulocytes tend to sediment in a first sedimentation step, and tend to not sediment in a second sedimentation step. (google.es)
  • mature
  • Like mature red blood cells, in mammals reticulocytes do not have a cell nucleus. (wikipedia.org)
  • and (3) preparing a control composition comprising a pre-determined concentration of stabilized, maturation-arrested reticulocytes by placing a predetermined concentration of the stabilized, maturation-arrested porcine reticulocytes in a red blood cell base, wherein the red blood cell base comprises detectable, mature erythrocytes. (google.es)
  • In order to identify reticulocytes, the cells can be distinguished from mature red blood cells by the presence in reticulocytes of a distinctive stainable marker formed of mitochondria, ribosomes, and other cytoplasmic organelles. (google.es)
