Effects of lysosomotropic agents on lipogenesis.

Abstract

Chloroquine, quinine, and NH4Cl are lysosomotropic agents which inhibit lysosomal function, apparently by raising the intralysosomal pH. We found that preincubation of cultured human skin fibroblasts with these lysosomotropic agents under serum-free conditions induced about a 10-fold stimulation of lipogenesis. A similar stimulatory effect on the… (More)
