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 (small red spots) 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 & the synthesis of vitamin A. Magnification: x80 at 6x7cm size.
