Dispersed among these cells are non-ciliated lipophil cells that contain large granules, including one very large granule closely apposed to the ventral surface.
Then lipophil cells in the vicinity of the algae secrete their large ventral granule, followed rapidly by lysis of the algae underneath.
adhaerens were transferred to Lab-Tek II coverslip chambers (Thermo Fisher Scientific) containing filtered ASW, Rhodamonas salina algae, and a fluorescent fatty acid (Cl-Bodipy 500/510-C12; Life Technologies) to label granules of lipophil cells.
Before the animals feed on algae, lipophil cells in the ventral epithelium secrete granules, including contents that lyse algae (Smith et al.
