  1. Hepatocyte-sinusoidal structure (HSS): (1) several-cell-thick plate type, (2) two-cell-thick plate type, (3): one-cell-thick plate type. Hematopoietic tissue structures: (−): do not exist, (+): exist. CZ – pericentral zone; IHLN – Inter-hepatic lobular nodule; PZ – periportal zone; PSR – Perihepatic subcapsular region; Portal triad region – PTR.
