Organic ‘compensatory’ osmolytes in osmolarity control and hydration changes in animal cells

  • R Gilles

Abstract

This paper briefly reviews some aspects of the research on organic solutes in osmolarity control and hydration changes of animal cells. It is concerned with the nature of these solutes, their roles in acclimation to hyperosmotic situations, the control of their concentration, and the sensing and signalling of osmolarity changes.
