  • LECTURE 6 Dr. Zahoor Ali Shaikh 1
  • Slide 2
  • Bile is formed in the liver, emptied in the duodenum via bile duct. Biliary system includes the liver, gallbladder, and ducts. 2
  • Slide 3
  • Metabolism of carbohydrate, protein, and fat, after their absorption from the digestive tract. Detoxification of drugs, hormones, body waste products. Plasma Protein Synthesis. Blood clotting factors Synthesis. Storing Glycogen, fat, iron, copper. 3
  • Slide 4
  • Storing vitamin A,D, Vit B 12. Activating vitamin D. Removing bacteria and old red blood cell by macrophages. Secreting hormones e.g. insulin like growth factor 1 [stimulates growth], thrombopietin [stimulates platelet production]. Excreting cholesterol and bilirubin [bilirubin is breakdown product of RBC]. 4
  • Slide 5
  • Liver cell is called HEPATOCYTE. HEPATO means liver, CYTE means cell. HEPATOCYTE performs metabolic and secretary functions. HEPATOCYTE does not do Phagocytosis. Phagocytosis is done by macrophages present in the liver called KUPFFER cells. 5
  • Slide 6
  • Two sources 1. Hepatic Artery supplies arterial blood 2. Portal Vein from GIT Blood leaves the liver via hepatic vein. NOTE Portal Vein breaks in sinusoids which exchange with hepatic cells before draining into hepatic vein which joins inferior venaceva. 6

  • Slide 8
  • Liver has functional units called lobules, they are hexagonal with central vein. Each lobule has three vessels: - Branch of Hepatic Artery, - Branch of Portal Vein - Bile Duct From Hepatic artery and Portal vein blood goes to expended capillary space called SINUSOIDS which runs to central vein. 8

  • Slide 11
  • The Kupffer cells line the sinusoids and destroy old RBC and bacteria that pass through them. Central veins of all liver lobules converge to form hepatic vein, which carries blood away from the liver. 11
  • Slide 12
  • The bile is formed and continuously secreted by liver cells [Hepatocyte]. Bile goes to bile duct. Bile ducts from different lobules form Right and Left hepatic duct, then common hepatic duct is formed which combines with Cystic duct (from Gall bladder) to form Common bile duct. Common bile duct transports bile to the duodenum. 12

  • Slide 14
  • Bile is continuously secreted by liver and sent to the Gallbladder between meals. Opening of the bile duct in the duodenum is guarded by the sphincter of Oddi. It allows the bile to pass in the duodenum during meals. When food is not taken sphincter of Oddi is closed, therefore bile secreted by the liver goes to the gallbladder 14
  • Slide 15
  • In the gallbladder bile is stored and concentrated between the meals. BILE Bile secreted per day --- 500 ml Bile is alkaline fluid PH 8 (it has NaHco3- from bile ducts) Bile contains Bile salts, cholesterol, lecithin (phospholipid) and Bilirubin (all derived from Hepatocyte activity ) 15
  • Slide 16
  • Bile does not contain any enzyme Bile is important for Emulsification [breaking fat into small molecules] therefore helping in digestion and absorption if Fats BILE SALTS AND THEIR ENTROHEPATIC CIRCULATION Bile salts are derivates of cholesterol. They are actively secreted in bile. 16
  • Slide 17
  • Most of the bile salts [95%] are reabsorbed from terminal ileum [small intestine] into the blood by active transport. Bile salt are returned to liver by hepatic portal system. Liver re-secretes them into the bile. This recycling of bile salt between small intestine and liver is called ENTROHEPATIC CIRCULATION [Entro means intestine, hepatic means liver]. 17

  • Slide 19
  • On average bile salts cycle between liver and small intestine twice during one meal. Only 5% of bile salt are lost in the feces per day. Last bile salts are replaced by new bile salts synthesized by liver. 19
  • Slide 20
  • Bile salts cause lipid emulsification [breaking fat into small molecules], therefore, increasing the surface area, so that pancreatic lipase can act. These fat globules are triglyceride molecules. To digest fat globules, lipase must act on them. NOTE If no bile salt, it will take long time for lipase to do fat digestion. 20

  • Slide 22
  • MICELLAR FORMATION Micelle is small lipid particle 3-10 nm [emulsified fat droplet is 1000 nm]. bile salt, cholesterol and lecithin help in Micelle formation. Micelle carry Monoglycerides and free fatty acids. 22
  • Slide 23
  • Gall Stones - Cholesterol Gall Stone 75% - Bilirubin Gall Stone 25% 23
  • Slide 24
  • Bilirubin is waste product excreted in bile. It is bile pigment, derived from the breakdown of RBC. It does not play any role in Digestion. Bilirubin is taken from the blood by Hepatocyte and actively excreted into the bile. Bilirubin is yellow pigment, therefore, gives yellow color to bile. 24
  • Slide 25

  • Slide 26
  • In intestine, bilirubin is acted by bacteria and converted to urobilinogen and stercobilinogen. Stercobilinogen is excreted in feces and gives brown color to feces. If bile duct is obstructed by stone, color of feces turns to grey white. Small amount of urobilinogen is reabsorbed in the intestine in the blood and excreted in the urine and gives yellow color to urine. 26
  • Slide 27
  • If increased amount of bilirubin in the blood, it causes Jaundice [yellow coloration of eyes]. Normal bilirubin is less than 2mg /dl. 27
  • Slide 28
  • Three Mechanism 1. Chemical 2. Hormonal 3. Neural 1. Chemical Mechanism By bile salt, they are most potent stimulus for increasing bile secretion. Any substance which increases bile secretion is called CHOLERETIC. 28
  • Slide 29
  • 2. Hormonal Mechanism Secretin hormone stimulates watery alkaline bile secretion from the bile ducts. 3. Neural Mechanism Vagal stimulation plays minor role in bile secretion during cephalic phase of digestion. IMPORTANT Food in duodenum [fat] causes release of CCK. This hormone causes contraction of gallbladder and relaxation of sphincter of ODDI. 29
  • Slide 30
  • It stores and concentrates bile between meals and empties bile into the duodenum during meals. As bile secretion occurs continuously in liver, therefore, bile secreted between the meals is send to the gall bladder, where it is stored and concentrated. In gall bladder, bile is concentrated 5-10 times due to absorption of bile salt and water. Gall bladder can hold 50ml of bile. 30
  • Slide 31
  • Jaundice When bilirubin increases more than 2mg/dL jaundice occurs. Causes of Jaundice Pre-hepatic [problem before liver] or Hemolytic Jaundice due to increased breakdown of RBC. Hepatic [problem in liver] e.g. Viral Hepatitis Post-hepatic [problem after the liver] or Obstructive Jaundice e.g. stone in the bile duct. 31
