    Chloroquine for research Cell-culture tested InvivoGen Endosomal Acidification Inhibitor. 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.
