Open Access | Chloroquine reduces arylsulphatase B activity and increases chondroitin 4-sulphate: implications for mechanisms of action and resistance

If chloroquine reduced ASB activity, leading to increased chondroitin-4-sulphation, it was hypothesized that the anti-malarial mechanism of chloroquine might derive, at least in part, from suppression of ASB.
