The liver normally weighs between 1. It is the second-largest organ in the body, and is located on the right side of the abdomen. The liver plays a major role in metabolism and has a number of functions in the body, including glycogen storage, plasma protein synthesis, and drug detoxification. It also produces bile, which is important for digestion. The liver is supplied by two main blood vessels on its right lobe: the hepatic artery and the portal vein. The portal vein brings venous blood from the spleen, pancreas, and small intestine so that the liver can process the nutrients and byproducts of food digestion.

Comprehensive Human Physiology pp Cite as. The liver has a strategically important position in the circulation. It is the first organ that comes in contact with the blood after its exposure to the intestine. This implies not only that the liver faces absorbed nutrients, xenobiotics, toxins and gut-derived microorganisms, which need to be processed before entering the systemic circulation, first, but also suggests a hepatic role in the excretion of compounds into the intestinal lumen, in addition to the sensing and processing of gut-derived signals that then may trigger the function of other organs. Thus, in a wide sense the liver acts as a preparation plant for both hardware and software delivery to other organs.
