Removing potassium from culture media partially rescues formation of lipid droplets. WT or kcn11 cells were grown in N-depleted medium for 2 days with or without potassium followed by Nile Red staining (a), by measurement of cellular number (b) and size (c) of the lipid droplets. Bar = 5 µm. Data shown are mean ± sem (n = 50). N.S., no significant. *P < 0.05, ***P < 0.0001 (t test)
