Portal Venous System The portal vein collects blood from the gut which after a meal is rich in digested food. 3 The main biochemical functions of the liver not discussed in this section. Protein metabolism 1. Deamination of proteins, and manufacture of urea from ammonia.

The remaining problem therefore is the link between nuclear DNA and ribosomal RNA. What acts as the 'foreman' to instruct the ribosomes how to carry out the plans of the nucleus?
