    Chloroquine lysosomal acidification


    MLIV is typified by accumulation of lipids and membranous materials in intracellular organelles, which was hypothesized to be caused by the altered membrane fusion and fission events. How mutations in TRP-ML1 lead to aberrant lipolysis is not known.

    Chloroquine is a 9-aminoquinoline that has been known since 1934. Specifically synthesised to be used as an antimalarial agent, chloroquine was subsequently shown to have immunomodulatory properties that have encouraged its application in the treatment of autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. Chloroquine is a 4-aminoquinoline with antimalarial, anti-inflammatory, and potential chemosensitization and radiosensitization activities. Although the mechanism is not well understood, chloroquine is shown to inhibit the parasitic enzyme heme polymerase that converts the toxic heme into non-toxic hemazoin. Chloroquine inhibits lysosomal enzyme pinocytosis and enhances lysosomal enzyme secretion by impairing receptor recycling.

    Thus, measurement of lysosomal p H revealed that the lysosomes in TRP-ML1 is a lysosomal storage disease typified by the accumulation of lipids and membranous material in intracellular organelles, predominantly lysosomes (reviewed in Refs. Earlier attempts to explain the accumulation of lipids in MLIV focused on hyperactive endocytosis (3). Here we present evidence that MLIV is a metabolic disorder that is not associated with aberrant membrane fusion/fission events.

  3. Chloroquine is a weak base which can partition into acidic vesicles such as endosomes and lysosomes, resulting in inhibi-tion of endosomal acidification and lysosomal enzyme activity. Because acidic pH of endosomes is a prerequisite of endoso-mal TLR activation, chloroquine can serve as an antagonist for endosomal TLRs.

    Chloroquine CQ is a 4-aminoquinoline drug used for the treatment of diverse diseases. It inhibits lysosomal acidification and therefore prevents autophagy by blocking autophagosome fusion and degradation.

Jan 23, 2017 Consequently, chloroquine analogs inhibit the production of several cytokines, chemokines or mediators, whose excessive appearance contributes the severity of viral infections. Therefore, the inhibition of endosomal acidification by chloroquine analogs may become a potential therapeutic strategy for viral infections and associated pathologies.

    Treating Lupus with Anti-Malarial Drugs Johns Hopkins. Damage to the retina, the light sensitive portion of the inner eye, can occur with long-term use of Plaquenil or chloroquine Aralen. With Plaquenil, however, the most commonly prescribed anti-malarial, this sort of damage occurs only in 1 out of 5,000 people who take the drug for five years or more.

    Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil is considered a disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug DMARD. It can decrease the pain and swelling of arthritis. It may prevent joint damage and reduce the risk of long-term disability. Hydroxychloroquine is in a class of medications that was first used to prevent and treat malaria.
