Nematology , 2000, Vol. 2(5), 501-506 Requirements for branched chain amino acids and their interactions in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans Dalia P ERELMAN and Nancy C. L U * San Jose State University, Department of Nutrition and Food Science, One Washington Square, San Jose, CA 95192-0058,USA Accepted for publication: 14 April 2000 Summary – Branched chain amino acid (BCAA) requirements and their interactions were studied in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans . Optimal, de ciency and toxic levels affecting nematode population growth were determined for each of the three BCAAs. The optimal range for leucine was 0.72-2.8; for isoleucine, 0.86-1.7; and for valine, 0.51-4.1 mg ml 1 . Leucine at high concentrations was toxic. When isoleucine and valine were both added at high concentrations, they also exerted a marked toxic effect. The interactions of the branched chain amino acids found among vertebrate animals were not observed in C. elegans .
