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., 2015).

It is possible to reduce of the absorption lipophiles from the intestine.
Its ingestion results in an intestinal lipophilic solvent sink that carries a portion of other dietary lipophiles into the large intestine and the feces.
Nevertheless, since colonic contents do not normally contain significant amounts of lipid that might act as a solvent, the presence of unhydrolyzed fat might provide a stimulus to move lipophiles into the lumen.
