A classical liver lobule is made up of a central vein and the portal triads. A typical human liver weighs around 3 lbs. , while a typical bovine liver weighs around 12 lbs. I was wondering if anyone had a reference that might discuss the size of a bovine liver lobule vs. the size of a human liver lobule. Specifically, is the bovine liver lobule also larger than a human liver lobule?
