The ability of plant cells to maintain low cytosolic sodium concentrations is an essential process associated with the ability of plants to grow in high salt concentrations. Recent results have identified pathways for Na(+) entry, and the cloning of vacuolar Na(+)/H(+) antiporters has demonstrated the role of intracellular Na(+) compartmentation in plant salt tolerance.
