  • Changes in cell turgor pressure have been followed in cells of Microcystis sp. transferred to culture medium containing added NaCl at osmolalities of 30–1,500 mosmol kg-1 (≡ 74–3,680 kPa). Upon upshock turgor decreased, due to osmotically-induced water loss from the cell. However, partial recovery of turgor was then observed in illuminated cells, with maximum turgor regain in media containing 30–500 mosmol kg-1 NaCl. The lightdependent recovery of turgor pressure was completed within 60 min… CONTINUE READING
