Figure 2

Inhibitory effect of curcumin on micellar cholesterol absorption in Caco-2 cells. The cells were pretreated with curcumin at different concentrations for 24 h, then incubated with radioactive micellar cholesterol for 2 h. The uptake of cholesterol in the absence of curcumin was normalized to 100%. Results are mean ± SEM from triplicate determinations in three separate experiments.
