    ..Taken together, these results suggest that the better performance of K305 compared to I743 during salt stress may be related to its greater ability to sequester Na(+) into sub-cellular compartments and/or maintain K(+) homeostasis...

    C R Biol 334:127-39. 2011
    ..Osmotic water permeability was determined by a swelling assay. However, no water uptake activity was observed for the three proteins. Hence, the possible physiological role of the proteins is discussed...
