Elevated levels of plasma low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) are causally related to atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. Enhancing the removal of LDL particles from the plasma, mainly by the liver, is the most efficient strategy for reducing LDL-C and the ensuing atherosclerosis. In this context, polyphenolic compounds like curcumin have generated interest owing to their lipid-modifying capacity. The promising effect of curcumin has been studied in attenuating atherosclerosis (in experimental models), and correcting dyslipidemia (in clinical studies). The underlying mechanisms of the effects of curcumin are relatively unknown, and the impact of curcumin on hepatic LDL uptake warrants further investigations. Here, we present a protocol to assess the effects of curcumin on LDL uptake in hepatocytes.
