Abstract

When a major portion of the intracellular K$^{+}$ in frog muscle is reversibly replaced by Na$^{+}$, the extra Na$^{+}$ gained by the cells does not show the nuclear magnetic resonance signal that free Na$^{+}$ does. The data contradict the membrane theory but are in accord with the concept that the bulk of intracellular K$^{+}$ is adsorbed.
