Top definition
The structural unit of the liver is a liver/hepatic lobule. A single human liver lobule includes parts of a number of hepatic (liver) acini, each centred on a portal tract.

However the physiology of the liver is more accurately represented by the unit structure known as the hepatic acinus.
