Example sentences for: osmotic

How can you use “osmotic” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • Tetraethylammonium is known as a pore-occluding blocker of voltage-gated potassium channels [ 1 ] , but it also blocks other cationic channels such as calcium-dependent K +channels [ 2 3 ] and the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor [ 4 ] . TEA at 0.1 to 10 mM also inhibits osmotic water flux through human AQP1 channels expressed in Xenopus oocytes, decreasing the net swelling rate in hypotonic saline by 30-40% as compared to AQP1-expressing oocytes not treated with TEA [ 5 ] . This blocking effect on osmotic water flux was demonstrated to involve AQP1 channels specifically by using site-directed mutagenesis (tyrosine 186 to phenylalanine) to generate a Y186F AQP1 channel that is insensitive to block by TEA, but retains sensitivity to block by mercury.

  • 1 mM TEA produces a 34% block of osmotic water flux in MDCK cells, and 10 mM TEA produces a 50% block in renal descending thin limbs.

  • The effect of 0.11 M glucose on 20:1 mobilization is not solely due to the increased osmotic potential of the media, as equi-molar and even twice equi-molar concentrations of sorbitol have little effect on 20:1 mobilization (Figure 1).

  • An equal portion of wet cells, treated identically but not subjected to osmotic shock, was designated as the non-shock periplasmic fraction.

  • As an osmotic control, seedlings were grown on 0.24 M sorbitol + 0.03 M glucose for 10 days, or on 0.03 M glucose for 3 days followed by an additional 7 days on 0.24 M sorbitol + 0.03 M glucose.
