Expert Answer:

Hi Buntitanooj,

The functions of Kupffer cells are:

1. Kupffer cells play an important role by capturing and digesting bacteria, fungi, parasites, worn-out blood cells, and cellular debris. The large volume of blood passing through the hepatic portal system and the liver allows Kupffer cells to clean large volumes of blood very quickly.

2. It also stimulates the collagen production.
