Caption: Illustration of a hepatocyte. Hepatocytes are cells of the main tissue of the liver and make up about 70 to 80% of the liver's cytoplasm. They are involved in protein synthesis and storage, transformation of carbohydrates, synthesis of cholesterol, bile salts and phospholipids, and the formation and secretion of bile. The background illustrates the arrangement of hepatocytes in the liver.
