The liver provides a barrier between the portal and systemic circulations. In its reticulo-endothelial functions it acts as an effective barrier against infection. It also acts as a metabolic buffer between the highly variable contents of the gut and portal blood and the tightly controlled systemic circulation. By absorbing, storing and releasing glucose, fat and amino acids, the liver plays a vital role in homeostasis. It also stores and releases vitamins A, D and B12. It metabolizes or deactivates most of the biologically active compounds absorbed from the gut, such as drugs and bacterial toxins. It performs many of the same functions in systemic blood entering from the hepatic artery, processing a total of 29% of cardiac output.
