The dietary sterol content is a crucial factor in determining food quality for Daphnia. Ciliates, however, presumably do not synthesize sterols de novo. We hypothesized that ciliates are nutritionally inadequate because of their lack of sterols and tested this hypothesis in growth experiments with Daphnia magna and the ciliate Colpidium campylum. The lipid content of the ciliate was altered by allowing them to feed on fluorescently labeled albumin beads supplemented with different sterols. Ciliates that preyed upon a sterol-free diet (bacteria) did not contain any sterols, and growth of D. magna on these ciliates was poor. Supplementation of the ciliates food source with different sterols led to the incorporation of the supplemented sterols into the ciliates cells and to enhanced somatic growth of D. magna. Sterol limitation was thereby identified as the major constraint of ciliate food quality for Daphnia. Furthermore, by supplementation of sterols unsuitable for supporting Daphnia growth, we provide evidence that ciliates as intermediary grazers biochemically upgrade unsuitable dietary sterols to sterols appropriate to meet the physiological demands of Daphnia.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-03-24T17:44:25Z</dc:date> <dcterms:issued>2006</dcterms:issued> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
