Method Cells were washed with warm (37°C), slightly hypertonic glucose solution added drop-wise from a pipette.
Comments See note beneath table. Total and bound K+ were determined to allow the calculation of free K+ within the cell, which is the fraction that balances the charge of osmotically active anions.
