Movements of K+, Na+, and Cl}- ions during transcellular osmosis were studied in internodal cells ofNitella flexilis. Much K+ was released from the endosmotic cell part, but only a little from the exosmotic cell part. The amount of K+ released depended on the osmotic gradient driving transcellular osmosis. Movement of Na+ was hardly detected. Cl}- was… CONTINUE READING
