It can also inhibit certain enzymes by its interaction with DNA. In this review, a hypothesis is presented that can explain much of the confusing detail concerning the Chloroquine in Plasmodium faleiparum 205 specific antimalarial action of chloroquine.

The mechanism of this blockade has not been established.
