What exactly is responsible for carrying O2 (oxygen)? hemoglobin - oxygen bind with pigment
Which cells perform phagocytosis? leukocytes (WBC).
List two functions of platelets. 1) release thromboplastin. 2) platelet plug.
What blood cells are formed in the red bone marrow? All - WBC, RBC, Platelets.
Which is described as the "protein pigment" which is carried in the RBC? hemoglobin

Which organ forms bilirubin from waste products of old RBC destruction? Spleen
Which element plays a major role in the clotting mechanism? Calcium
