Medical Definition of Erythrocytopoiesis

1. Process of production of erythrocytes in the marrow in adult mammals. A pluripotent stem cell (CFU) produces, by a series of divisions, committed stem cells (BFU Es) that give rise to CFU Es, cells that will divide only a few more times to produce mature erythrocytes. Each stem cell product can give rise to 2exp11 mature red cells. This entry appears with permission from the Dictionary of Cell and Molecular Biology (11 Mar 2008)
