Caption: Illustration depicting Hepatitis C virus (upper right) attacking hepatocyte cells (middle, with cutaway view) in the liver. 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. A bile duct is shown in green. A sinusoid (space which carries blood) is shown in blue. If untreated, hepatitis C can result in cirrhosis and cancer of the liver.
