Description

Mefloquine hydrochloride (Mefloquin hydrochloride), a quinoline antimalarial agent, is an anti-SARS-CoV-2 entry inhibitor. Mefloquine hydrochloride is also a K+ channel (KvQT1/minK) antagonist with an IC50 of ~1 μM. Mefloquine hydrochloride can be used for malaria, systemic lupus erythematosus and cancer research[1][2][3].

IC50 & Target

Plasmodium

 

In Vitro

Mefloquine hydrochloride selectively inhibits prostate cancer (PCa) cell growth with an IC50 of ~10 μM. Mefloquine hydrochloride also induces hyperpolarization of the mitochondrial membrane potential (MMP), as well as ROS generation[2].
Mefloquine hydrochloride (10 μM)-mediated ROS simultaneously downregulated Akt phosphorylation and activated ERK, JNK and AMPK signaling in PC3 cells[2].
Mefloquine shows higher anti-SARS-CoV-2 activity than Hydroxychloroquine in VeroE6/TMPRSS2 and Calu-3 cells, with IC50 of 1.28 μM, IC90 of 2.31 μM, and IC99 of 4.39 μM in VeroE6/TMPRSS2 cells. Mefloquine inhibits viral entry after viral attachment to the target cell[3].

In Vivo

Mefloquine hydrochloride (5 mg/kg; i.p.; daily; 14 days) reverses the lower vertebral cancellous bone volume and bone formation; and has modest effects on cortical bone volume, thickness, and moment of inertia in old mice[4].

Help & FAQs
  • Do most proteins show cross-species activity?

    Species cross-reactivity must be investigated individually for each product. Many human cytokines will produce a nice response in mouse cell lines, and many mouse proteins will show activity on human cells. Other proteins may have a lower specific activity when used in the opposite species.
