Biosynthetic origin of the saw-toothed profile in δ 13 C and δ 2 H of n -alkanes and systematic isotopic differences between n-, iso - and anteiso -alkanes in leaf waxes of land plants
The n-fatty acids containing an even number of carbons (ECN-n-FAs) in higher plants are biosynthesised by repetitive addition of a two carbon unit from malonyl-ACP. The n-alkanes containing an odd number of carbon atoms (OCN-n-alkanes) are generally formed by the decarboxylation of ECN-n-FAs, but it is unknown how the less abundant even-carbon-numbered alkanes (ECN-n-alkanes) are biosynthesised in higher plants. There is a distinctive compositional pattern of incorporation of stable carbon...[Show more]
