    On the molecular mechanism of chloroquine's antimalarial action PNAS Chloroquine is thought to exert its antimalarial effect by preventing the polymerization of toxic heme released during proteolysis of hemoglobin in the Plasmodium digestive vacuole. The mechanism of this blockade has not been established. We incubated cultured parasites with subinhibitory doses of 3Hchloroquine and 3H quinidine. These 3Hquinoline compounds became associated with hemozoin.
