Nanotechnology-Applied Curcumin for Different Diseases Therapy

Figure 2

A schematic figure of how curcumin is located in liposomes and enters into cells. Curcumin is encapsulated inside the liposomal container and covalently bound to liposome, so it is protected from destruction on the way to the target. The liposome membrane is usually made of phospholipids, which constitute biological membranes and can deliver curcumin into cells by two different ways: fusion and endocytosis.
