The focus of our study was to determine whether the biochemical composition of two algivorous ciliates, both fed the same alga, resembles that of their diet. By comparing both ciliated protozoa we intended to identify species-specific differences in the metabolic features of these ciliates. Carbon- and cell-specific concentrations of fatty acids and essential amino acids were investigated for the ciliates Balanion planctonicum and Urotricha farcta grown on the cryptomonad Cryptomonas phaseolus… CONTINUE READING
