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.

your liver is your power engine

Liver, one of the most hardworking organs in your body, sits snugly in the upper right part of your abdomen, beneath the diaphragm. This organ perform multi functions and it works tirelessly all day. Your body needs the energy to carry out all its tasks. You may have a vague idea that the food you eat plies your body with strength. But where does this energy come from? How is it produced? Your liver has a hand in it. Have we piqued your curiosity? Do you want to know how it acts as your body’s power source?

  1. Utilization of  carbohydrates 
    Carbohydrates are a macro-nutrient that are vital for energy production. They are present in foods such as wheat rice, potatoes, apples, bananas etc. But in the form you consume them, carbohydrates will not energize you. So your body converts them into glucose and stores them in your liver as glycogen. Glucose gives you energy. When your body senses your energy levels are dropping, the liver releases some glycogen that immediately perks you up.
     
  2. Breaking down proteins
    Your liver also breaks down protein by deaminating them to initiate the Krebs/Citric Acid Cycle. It is your liver that starts changing the amino acids so that proteins can enter the Citric Acid Cycle in which they will be converted into the kind of energy that is usable.
     
  3. Metabolism of fats
    Do you know how your liver plays a part in metabolism? It does its bit in the breakdown of fats with the help of bile. And when fats are broken down, you get energy.
