The liver stores glycogen, iron and vitamins A, D, and B12 • Biochemistry rubin in the blood is in the normal unconjugated form and is bound to plasma protein. No bilirubin therefore appears in the urine. No urobilinogen appears in the main circulation or in the urine, except occasionally when the rate of red cell destruction is so high that the liver cannot remove all the urobilinogen it receives in the portal blood. The faeces are usually very dark because of the excess bile pigment. 2. Hepatogenous This occurs when the liver cells are damaged.

Jaundice is the term given to the yellow pigmentation of the skin, white parts of the eyes and mucous membranes, which occurs when the plasma contains unusually large amounts of either unconjugated or conjugated bilirubin. There are three main types of jaundice: 3. Red cell manufacture. During fetal development before birth, the liver is aft important site of red cell manufacture. By the time of birth, however, this function has J. Haemolytic This occurs when the red cells are being destroyed at an unusually rapid rate.

Some of the enzymes which were discovered many years ago were named before this system was introduced. These enzymes usually keep their own names, like the pepsin which digests proteins in the stomach and the trypsin of pancreatic juice which digests proteins in the intestine. OUTLINE OF CATABOLISM Carbohydrates, fats and proteins are all capable of being broken down to supply energy. Although these substances are so different, the final and most important stages of their destruction are shared with one another.
