PROTEIN SYNTHESIS IN THE LIVER.

protein synthesis by the liver.
The liver is one of the most important organs for making proteins.
everyday Liver produces or transforms millions of protein molecules. proteins are made from amino acids. proteins have many vital functions in our body.
1. useful in growth and maintenance of body tissues such as muscles, the heart , kidneys and blood vessels  2. transports vitamins and minerals around the body.
3. acts as catalysts to speed up metabolic reactions  – these proteins are called enzymes.
4. some regulates the patterns of all the different activities within a cell.
ALBUMIN : Albumin present in high quantities in the blood. Albumin used to bind hormones , certain chemicals and drugs.Albumin also regulates the exchange of water between blood and tissue.If the liver is not able to synthesis enough albumin a build up of fluid in the tissues may occur this is associated with cirrhosis when fluid may build up in ankles, the feet (oedema) or in the abdomen that is called Ascites.
IRON : The liver stores iron and releases as and when it is needed.iron is toxic to the body’s cells so the body attaches it to a protein in the liver iron is bound to the protein ferritin   when liver disease is related to an increase in amount of ferritin in the liver it may cause damage to tissues and organs this is called Hematochromatosis 
iron is also essential for making hemoglobin this helps to transport oxygen in the bloodstream. if there is not enough iron to make Hemoglobin this may lead to anemia. 
AMMONIA CONVERSION : Ammonia is a toxic substance derived from metabolism of protein , the liver converts ammonia to urea which is water soluble non toxic and excreted by the kidneys. Liver dysfunction in cirrhosis affects the conversion of ammonia to urea that leads to build up of ammonia in blood. and this is the reason for Hepatic encephalopathy.
