I had some trouble understanding why they didnt ask about the inhibition of HMG-Coa reductase so did some more research into the LDL receptor pathway that I wasnt aware of. It appears to be the major contributor to the decreased cholesterol levels. Here is a good synopsis of the LDL upregulation pathway:
"Liver cells sense the reduced levels of liver cholesterol and seek to compensate by synthesizing LDL receptors to draw cholesterol out of the circulation. This is accomplished via proteases that cleave membrane-bound sterol regulatory element binding proteins, which then migrate to the nucleus and bind to the sterol response elements. The sterol response elements then facilitate increased transcription of various other proteins, most notably, LDL receptor. The LDL receptor is transported to the liver cell membrane and binds to passing LDL and VLDL particles, mediating their uptake into the liver, where the cholesterol is reprocessed into bile salts and other byproducts. This results in a net effect of less LDL circulating in blood."
