World-wide salinity and drought problems necessitate the understanding of biological adaptation to water deficit. Osmotic adjustment via organic solutes is a common strategy for organisms to deal with water deficit problems. Numerous water-soluble organic metabolites across several chemical classes are commonly utilized as osmolytes, including betaines, sulfonium and sulfonate compounds, amino acids, carbohydrates, and polyols. To deal with the complexity and variability in osmolyte composition… CONTINUE READING
