  1. Concept-

    • The liver is the largest gland of the Human body.
    • It is also the largest internal organ of the Human body.
    • The liver is the most extensive organ in the human body and human adults can weigh up to 1.5-1.6 kg.
    • The liver performs a multitude of functions in our body and in a single human or artificial organ or system it is difficult to reproduce so many functions.
    • Some of the critical functions of the liver include secretion of bile juices for lipid & vitamin decomposition, preparation of blood plasma proteins that enable blood clotting, and also detoxification.

    Key Points

    The liver performs several functions. One of these functions is glycogenesis.

    • The main centre of carbohydrate metabolism in the liver.
    • Glycogenesis is the conversion and storage of an extra amount of glucose into glycogen from the digested food is called glycogenesis.
    • The main stored food in the liver is glycogen.

    Explanation:

    • Regulation of blood sugar – Done by the liver.
    • Enzyme activation – Done by the liver.
    • Detoxification – Done by the liver.
    • Reproduction – Does not do by the liver.
