Descriptor eritropoyesis
Scope note: "Producción de células sanguíneas de la serie roja (ERITROCITOS). En los seres humanos, los eritrocitos se producen: durante el primer trimestre, en el SACO VITELINO; en el segundo trimestre, en el hígado; en el tercer trimestre y después del nacimiento, en la MEDULA ÓSEA. En individuos normales, el recuento de eritrocitos en sangre periférica permanece relativamente constante al existir un equilibrio entre la tasa de producción y la tasa de destrucción de eritrocitos."

Scope note: The production of red blood cells (ERYTHROCYTES). In humans, erythrocytes are produced by the YOLK SAC in the first trimester; by the liver in the second trimester; by the BONE MARROW in the third trimester and after birth. In normal individuals, the erythrocyte count in the peripheral blood remains relatively constant implying a balance between the rate of erythrocyte production and rate of destruction.
