This dish is based on the beautiful white honeycomb tripe, which comes from the second stomach, or the reticulum, of an ox.
The filaments form a reticulum in the meshes of which are contained the other elements.
reticulum, the Net, is a small constellation to the east of Hydrus and Horologium.
It is even held that these fibres penetrate the cell walls and connect adjoining cells, so that the entire body is a reticulum.
The reticulum within the fruit is similar to that of the foregoing species.
In this way the nerve trunks are developed—by a gathering up, so to speak, of the fibres of the reticulum into bundles.
Further, we find that the reticulum within the nucleus is made up of two very different parts.
One portion is apparently identical with the reticulum of the cell substance (Fig. 23, d).
The yolk is contained in the meshes of this reticulum in the manner already described for other ova.
1650s, "second stomach of a ruminant" (so called from the folds of the membrane), from Latin reticulum "a little net" (see reticulate (adj.)). The word was later given various uses in biology, cytology, histology, etc., and made a southern constellation by La Caille (1763).
reticulum re·tic·u·lum (rĭ-tĭk'yə-ləm)
n. pl. re·tic·u·la (-lə)
A fine network formed by cells, by certain structures within cells, or by connective-tissue fibers between cells.
The second compartment of the stomach of ruminant mammals, lined with a membrane having honeycombed ridges.
The second division of the stomach in ruminant animals, which together with the rumen contains microorganisms that digest fiber. The reticulum's contents are regurgitated for further chewing as part of the cud. See more at ruminant.
