    Chloroquine one drug treatment Is plaquenil a disease modifying How to tell if plaquenil is causing blindness

    Chloroquine is a lysosomotropic agent that prevents endosomal acidification 1. It accumulates inside the acidic parts of the cell, including endosomes and lysosomes. This accumulation leads to inhibition of lysosomal enzymes that require an acidic pH, and prevents fusion of endosomes and lysosomes. Chloroquine is a lysosomotropic weak base, which in the monoprotonated form diffuses into the lysosome, where it becomes diprotonated and becomes trapped. Protonated chloroquine then changes the lysosomal pH, thereby inhibiting autophagic degradation in the lysosomes. Chloroquine is a widely used biological research tool for studying autophagy inhibition. Research studies demon-strate that chloroquine accumulates in acidic lysosomes and increases the lysosomal pH. This inhibits lysosomal hydrolases and prevents autophagosomal fusion and degradation, which can result in apoptotic or necrotic cell death 1-4.

    Dear Wonyul, The observation you are seeing is a reflection of the fact that Chloroquine induces the autophagic aqnd apoptosis process but then inhibits the fusion of the lysosomes with the. Chloroquine is commonly used to study the role of endosomal acidification in cellular processes 2, 3, such as the signaling of intracellular TLRs. Moreover, Chloroquine inhibits autophagy as it raises the lysosomal pH, which leads to inhibition of both fusion of autophagosome with lysosome and lysosomal protein degradation. Chloroquine is an aminoquinoline that is an inhibitor of autophagy and has antimalarial and anticancer activities.1-3 Chloroquine inhibits autophagosome-lysosome fusion in HeLa cells when used at a concentration of 100 µM.1 It is active against the chloroquine-sensitive GC03 strain of P. falciparum IC
