inhomogeneity = lack of uniformity
Explanation:
The American Heritage Dictionary defines "inhomogeneity " as "lack of homogeneity." If that does not sound like a menaingful explanation, I would then propose "lack of uniformity."

inhomogenity


Explanation:
First, there is a typo, it's 'inhomogenity'.
Then, it means something like uniform, smooth, even. So, the activity in the liver isn't regular, not the same in all areas.
I hope that helps :-)
