Biosynthetic and environmental effects on the stable carbon isotopic compositions of anteiso- (3-methyl) and iso- (2-methyl) alkanes in tobacco leaves
Nicotiana tabacum is the only plant known to synthesise large quantities of anteiso- (3-methyl) alkanes and iso- (2-methyl) alkanes. We investigated the carbon isotope ratios of individual long-chain n-alkanes, anteiso- and iso-alkanes (in the C29-C33 carbon number range) extracted from tobacco grown in chambers under controlled conditions to confirm the pathway used by the tobacco plant to synthesise these particular lipids and to examine whether environmental data are recorded in these...[Show more]
