Caption: Light micrograph of a section of normal human liver, showing hepatocytes (liver cells) surrounding a blood vessel. Hepatocytes are large cells with prominent, circular nuclei (red stain), which function to process lipids and store glycogen, a metabolic product from excess glucose. Branches of the liver's dual blood supply, the hepatic artery & hepatic portal vein, are found in connective tissue angles at the margins of liver lobules (structures made up of hepatocytes). The blood vessel in this section (circular, centre right) is surrounded by blue-staining connective tissue. Magnification: x600 at 6x7cm size.
