NAME

Liver

DESCRIPTION

The liver is a large, glandular, vital organ – divided into two main lobes – with a major role in metabolism, detoxification and production of chemicals necessary for digestion. The liver is largely comprised of hepatocytes, but Kupffer cells, endothelial cells and hepatic stellate cells are also present.

78 skos:definition Hepatic stellate cells reside between the hepatocytes and small blood vessels in the liver. They are characterised by the presence of lipid droplets and thin protrusions extending around the blood vessels. Their activation in damaged liver leads to secretion of collagen and formation of scar tissue, leading to chronic fibrosis or cirrhosis.
