This cell is about 15-20 m in diameter. The nuclear to cytoplasmic ratio is high but usually a bit bless than the proerythroblast. The paranuclear Golgi zone is a bit smaller than the proerythroblast and the cytoplasm is intensely basophilic as a result of a large population of polyribosomes. Peroxidase staining indicates that hemoglobin is being synthesized (not shown) but its concentration does not yet lessen the intense basophilia.
