Liver tissue. Digitally enhanced light micrograph of a thin section through liver tissue (purple, left) stained with haematoxylin and eosin. The liver is a complex organ responsible for the production, metabolism, and breakdown of many substances within the body. The liver also stores many substances, releasing them as needed and playing an important role in homoeostasis (regulation of physiological variables).
