Growth osmolalities above which, for cells grown with GB, the amount of K+ remains relatively constant

Range ~1 Osm
Organism Bacteria Escherichia coli
Reference Cayley S, Record MT Jr. Large changes in cytoplasmic biopolymer concentration with osmolality indicate that macromolecular crowding may regulate protein-DNA interactions and growth rate in osmotically stressed Escherichia coli K-12. J Mol Recognit. 2004 Sep-Oct17(5):488-96. p.492 right column 2nd paragraphPubMed ID15362109
Comments "For cells grown with GB (glycine betaine), the amount of K+ (the other major cytoplasmic solute) remains relatively constant at growth osmolalities above 1 Osm"
