Example sentences for: osmotic

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • However, replacement of native PC with 1,2-dipalmitoyl-PC resulted in an increase in both osmotic fragility and cellular hydration.

  • To control for possible osmotic effects of BDM treatment, we treated cells with 20 mM urea, and as with a media control, more than 90% of the cells showed localization of Arp3 at the leading edge.

  • For example, when they replaced the native PC with 1-palmitoyl, 2-arachidonoyl-PC in normal cells, the cells exhibited decreased osmotic fragility without a change in hydration.
