Okay, so I'm learning about how blood is made and I have this question. I know
that red and white blood cells are made from the same stem cell in marrow but
how is it exactly that red blood cells know to eject there nucleus when forming
and white blood cells do not? Is it a hormone, protein; is it coded in the
genes? What controls this function?
