Liver anatomy. Artwork of a frontal view of the liver, dissected to show some of its internal anatomy. The liver, subdivided into lobes, is the largest gland in the human body. It plays a vital role in metabolism, storing nutrients in forms such as glycogen, and helping to clean the blood of toxins and other waste products. It also produces bile, a liquid that is used to digest fats. The bile is transported in bile ducts (green) and is stored in the gall bladder (lower left). Blood is brought to and from the liver in veins (blue) and arteries (red). The main blood vessels are the hepatic portal vein and the hepatic artery. In the background is the inferior vena cava.
