    - stores and creates glycogen (storage in response to insulin)
    - releases glycogen as glucose (response to glucagon)
    - bile synthesis
    - recieves nutrients from small intestine via hepatic portal vein.

    there are others, but these are the essential ones for the MCAT

    Or just use google... It takes one second to type liver functions and find your answers.
