Method P.333 right column 2nd paragraph: "Optical microscopy measurements showed that nucleus and cytosol contribute 10.35±2.44% (n=48) and 91.99±4.18% (n=48) of the intracellular volume (121.47±1.29µm^3, n=9), respectively." P.332 right column bottom paragraph: "Electron microscopy of these cells confirmed their characteristic morphology containing only nucleus and cytoplasm, being devoid of other intracellular organelles [Erythrocytes of vertebrates other than mammals have nucleii]."
