Our objective is to explore the effect of curcumin on permeability of coronary artery and expression of related proteins in rat coronary atherosclerosis heart disease model.45 healthy male Wistar rats of clean grade were selected and divided into treatment group, model control group and blank control group. The rats in the treatment group and model control group received high-fat diet for 12 weeks and intraperitoneal injection of VD3 to establish rat coronary atherosclerosis heart disease model. After modeling, the rats in the treatment group received gavage of 100 mg/(kgd) curcimin, and the rats in the model control group and blank control group received gavage of 5 ml/(kgd) distilled water, the intervention time was 4 weeks. After intervention, the rats were killed, and the hearts were dissected to obtain the samples of coronary artery. After embedding and frozen section, immunofluorescence method was used to detect the change of endarterium permeability in 3 groups, Western blot was used to detect matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) and CD40L in coronary artery tissue, and enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was used to detect serum tumor necrosis factor- (TNF-) and C reaction protein (CRP).After modeling, compared with the blank control group, total cholesterol (TC), triglyceride (TG) and low density lipoprotein cholesterin (LDL-c) in the treatment group and model control group were significantly higher (P<0.05), however, high density lipoprotein cholesterin (HDL-c) was significantly lower. The pathological sections showed that there was lipidosis in rat coronary artery in treatment group and model control group, indicating that the modeling was successful. Immunofluorescence showed that there was only a little fluorochrome permeability in artery in blank control group, there was some fluorochrome permeability in artery in the treatment group and there was a lot of fluorochrome permeability in artery in the model control group. MMP-9 and CD40L in coronary artery tissue in the model control group were significantly higher than the treatment group (P<0.05), MMP-9 and CD40L in coronary artery tissue in the treatment group were significantly higher than the blank control group (P<0.05); serum TNF- and CRP in the model control group were significantly higher than the treatment group (P<0.05), which were significantly higher in the treatment group than the blank control group (P<0.05).Rat coronary atherosclerosis heart disease model can be successfully established by feeding with high-fat diet and intraperitoneal injection of VD3, the permeability of coronary artery in coronary heart disease rat model is significantly increased, which may be related to up-regulation of MMP-9, CD40L, TNF- and CRP expression. Application of curcumin can inhibit expression of MMP-9, CD40L, TNF- and CRP to improve the permeability of coronary artery.
