The general characteristics of aging are lisfed in Table 2. As NRBCs become older they decrease in size. Size is important in determining age. The color of the cytoplasm passes through a variety of combinations of blue to pink, depending on the concentrations of RNA and hemoglobin. The nucleus changes from a deep red to bluish-purple and the nuclear chromatin from fine to coarse. The nucleus shrinks in size. Normally neither the Golgi apparatus nor nucleoli are visible after the E2 stage.
