Red blood cells (also referred to as erythrocytes) are the most common type of blood cell making up nearly 45% of the volume of blood. Mature red blood cells are flexible and oval biconcave disks. While they lack a cell nucleus and most organelles, they serve as the primary transporter for hemoglobin, an iron-containing biomolecule that can bind oxygen.
