Brevibacterium linens can grow in media of relatively high osmotic strength (up to 3 M-NaCl). Optimal growth in minimal medium occurred with either added NaCl (0.5-1 M) or other osmolytes developing an equivalent osmotic pressure. Above 1 M-NaCl the growth rate slowed, but was enhanced by adding the osmoprotectant glycine betaine or its precursor choline (1 mM) to the media. Neither soluble carbohydrates nor ninhydrin-reacting compounds accumulated during osmotic treatment. However, a…

Osmoadaptation in rhizobia: ectoine-induced salt tolerance
TLDR
The strong rise in glutamate content in cells osmotically stressed in the presence of ectoine suggests that, instead of being involved in osmotic balance restoration, ectoine should play a key role in triggering the synthesis of endogenous osmolytes.
NMR analyses of compatible solutes in a halotolerant Brevibacterium sp.
TLDR
E ectoine levels were high at high osmolarity, indicating that the halotolerant nature of Brevibacterium sp.
Sucrose Is a Nonaccumulated Osmoprotectant inSinorhizobium meliloti
TLDR
It is demonstrated, for the first time, the potent ability of this common sugar, supplied exogenously, to reduce growth inhibition of Sinorhizobium meliloti cells in media of inhibitory osmolarity.
Osmotic adaptation in Brevibacterium linens: differential effect of proline and glycine betaine on cytoplasmic osmolyte pool
TLDR
The strategy developed by B. linens cells allows the proposal of a novel role for proline in the osmoprotection process through its conversion to the apparently preferred endogenous osmolyte ectoine.
Sodium and proline accumulation in Corynebacterium glutamicum as a response to an osmotic saline upshock
TLDR
For Corynebacterium glutamicum an increased osmolality in the glutamate and proline synthesis during the growth phase is observed, which is followed by a strong accumulation of proline at the end of therowth phase.
Efflux of compatible solutes in Corynebacterium glutamicum mediated by osmoregulated channel activity.
TLDR
The results indicate the presence of an osmoregulated channel in C. glutamicum similar to the mechanosensitive channel(s) of Escherichia coli, which did not depend on the growth conditions, but there was a tight regulation on the level of activity.
Ectoine, the compatible solute of Halomonas elongata, confers hyperosmotic tolerance in cultured tobacco cells.
TLDR
The results suggest that genetically engineered synthesis of ectoine results in the increased hyperosmotic tolerance of cultured tobacco BY2 cells despite the low level of accumulation of the solute.
Growth of Corynebacterium glutamicum in ammonium- and potassium-limited continuous cultures under high osmotic pressure
Abstract In order to determine the possible effect of nutrient limitations on the response of Corynebacterium glutamicum to a saline osmotic up-shock, the bacteria were grown in continuous cultures,

Osmotic adjustment in Brevibacterium ammoniagenes: pipecolic acid accumulation at elevated osmolalities
TLDR
Preliminary data suggest that the biosynthesis of pipecolic acid from lysine is strongly regulated by external osmolality, and this non-proteic cyclic amino acid may play an important role in bacterial adaptation to environmental stress.
Osmoregulation in Rhizobium meliloti: Production of Glutamic Acid in Response to Osmotic Stress
TLDR
The results suggest that the excess glutamate made in response to osmotically stressed Rhizobium meliloti cells is derived from degradation of amino acids and transamination of 2-ketoglutarate.
Glycine betaine transport in Escherichia coli: osmotic modulation
TLDR
Results indicated that glycine betaine transport is driven by the electrochemical proton gradient, and it is proposed that E. coli possesses an active and specific glycine Betaine transport system which is regulated by the osmotic strength of the growth medium.
Osmotically regulated transport of proline by Lactobacillus acidophilus IFO 3532.
TLDR
The affinity of the carrier for proline remained constant over a range of osmotic pressures from 650 to 1,910 mosM (Kt, 7.8 to 15.5 mM); the Vmax, however, increased from 15 nmol/min/mg of dry weight in 0.5 M sucrose to 27 and 40 nmol-min-mg in 1.0 M KCl or NaCl, respectively.

Osmoprotection of Escherichia coli by ectoine: uptake and accumulation characteristics.
TLDR
Exogenously provided ectoine was found to stimulate growth of Escherichia coli in media of inhibitory osmotic strength, and its osmoprotective ability was as potent as that of glycine betaine.

TLDR
Using natural-abundance 13C nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, all organic solutes that accumulated to significant levels in osmotically stressed cultures are identified and it is speculated that mannosucrose confers the extra osmotic tolerance observed in the biotype I strains.

Role of amino acids in osmoregulation of non-halophilic bacteria
TLDR
It is reported that growth of non-halophilic bacteria at low water activities seems to depend on the ability of the cell to balance the environmental osmotic pressure by intracellular accumulation of amino acids, and on the types of amino acid which accumulate.
