Caption: Light micrograph of a section of normal human liver, showing the arrangement of hepatocytes (parenchyma tissue) within a liver lobule. Hepatocytes are large cells with prominent nuclei (darker stain) whose function is to process lipids and store glycogen, metabolized from excess glucose. In addition to being a prime site of the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and fats, other important liver functions include: detoxification of waste products; reclamation of spent red cells; synthesis & secretion of bile; synthesis of blood clotting agents fibrinogen & prothrombin; synthesis of vitamin A. Magnification: X 56 at 35mm size.
