Karl Bogislaus Reichert (1811 – 1883)

Karl Bogislaus Reichert (1811 – 1883) was a German anatomist and embryologist. Best known embryologically for the two structures that bear his name: Reichert's cartilage and Reichert's membrane. He worked in Berlin under Friedrich Schlemm and Johannes Peter Müller.

Reichert's cartilage

(second pharyngeal arch cartilage) Neural crest within the second pharyngeal arch forming this cartilage band. The dorsal ends form the middle ear ossicle (stapes) and temporal bone styloid process, the ventral part ossifies to form hyoid bone components of the lesser cornu and superior body. A study (PMID 16441562) suggest that this is not a continuous band (like Meckel’s) but a series of segments and mesenchymal tissue. Named after Karl Bogislaus Reichert (1811 – 1883) a German anatomist.

Reichert's membrane

In early rodent development, a thick multilayered basement membrane between the parietal endoderm cells and the trophoblast cells. This membrane has contentious origins, and has been suggested to begin with the formation of a basement membrane of the mural trophoblast cells, subsequent growth is from primitive endoderm cell depositions.
