A plasma cell is characterized by--

A. Plentiful rough endoplasmic reticulum

B. a rudimentary golgi complex

C. eccentric nuclei with a radial pattern of heterochromatin

D. numerous mitotic figures


Answer c is correct,but answer a is correct also because plasma cells have a deeply basophilic cytoplasm, due to abundance of RER.




You are right, mjl1717, while the option d (numerous mitotic figures) is a nonsense, since we are talking about a single cell.
