In response to hyperosmotic shock, the alga Dunaliella tertiolecta rapidly takes in exogenous glycerol to maintain osmoregularity. This activity is associated to Dunaliella tertiolecta Glycerol Uptake Protein 1 (DtGUP1), which belongs to the membrane-bound O-acyltransferase (MBOAT) family. A transgenic alga, with the DtGUP1 gene silenced, was unable to take in glycerol from the medium and hyperosmotic shock resulted in cell death
