hepatic cord

hepatic cord

a mass of cells, arranged in irregular radiating columns and plates, spreading outward from the central vein of the hepatic lobule. The cells are many-sided and contain one or sometimes two distinct nuclei. Many such cords join to form the parenchyma of the liver lobule. Each cell usually contains granules, some protoplasmic and others consisting of glycogen, fat, or an iron compound. Also called hepatic cells.
