    Background: Little is known about the effect of salt content of ingested fluid on intestinal transport processes. Osmosensitive genes include the serum- and glucocorticoid-inducible kinase SGK1, which is up-regulated by hyperosmolarity and cell shrinkage. SGK1 is in turn a powerful stimulator of...
