Carbon isotopic dietary signatures of amino acids
In an exploratory study, techniques were developed for isolating bulk plant proteins and measuring the 13C isotopic compositions of their constituent amino acids by HPLC-IRMS. Samples of plants expected to be of potential palaeodietary significance in northwestern Europe were selected for investigation.
Different tissues of plants, leaves and seeds, may be distinguished from each other by the relative 13C isotopic compositions (‘isotopic signatures’) of the amin...Expand abstract
