Abstract

Decreased serum concentrations that substantially alter the growth of normal 3T3 cells alter neither the active and non-active components of unidirectional 86Rb+ influx nor the intracellular K+ content when compared with cells in exponential growth. Thus the changes in K+ transport (measured with 86Rb+ as an analogue for K+ movements) that occur in density-dependent growth inhibition of the mouse 3T3 cell are not mimicked by serum deprivation of the cells before density inhibition.
