Saxitoxin selectively blocks voltage-gated Na+ channels, which causes death in animals. Increasing the concentration of salt increases the influx of Na+ into the cell, which has a significant effect on the Na+/H+ antiporters that maintain the pH gradient across the cell membrane, as protons are exchanged for cytoplasmic Na+. In this study, increasing the salt concentration in media containing C. , reduce intracellular Na+). The effects of Na+ stress on alkaliphiles have also been demonstrated by Takaichi et al.
