Descriptor English: Erythrocyte Aging
Descriptor Spanish: Envejecimiento Eritrocítico
Descriptor envejecimiento de los eritrocitos
Entry term(s) envejecimiento eritrocítico
supervivencia eritrocítica
Scope note: Senescencia de los ERITROCITOS. La falta de organelas que posibilitan la síntesis de proteínas hace que el eritrocito maduro sea incapaz de autorrestaurarse, reproducirse o realizar ciertas funciones de otras células. Esto limita la vida media de un eritrocito a 120 días.

Scope note: The senescence of RED BLOOD CELLS. Lacking the organelles that make protein synthesis possible, the mature erythrocyte is incapable of self-repair, reproduction, and carrying out certain functions performed by other cells. This limits the average life span of an erythrocyte to 120 days.
