Ratios of Carbon Isotopes in Microbial Lipids as an Indicator of Substrate Usage
ABSTRACT The occurrence and abundance of microbial fatty acids have been used for the identification of microorganisms in microbial communities. However, these fatty acids can also be used asExpand

Isotope fractionations in the biosynthesis of cell components by different fungi: a basis for environmental carbon flux studies.
Abstract The isotope fractionation of carbon from substrates possessing different isotope ratios into fatty acids of polar lipids and amino acids was determined for four different fungi (RhizopusExpand

Use of isotopic and molecular techniques to link toluene degradation in denitrifying aquifer microcosms to specific microbial populations
Abstract. Microcosms were inoculated with sediments from both a petroleum-hydrocarbon (PHC)-contaminated aquifer and from a nearby pristine aquifer and incubated under anoxic denitrifying conditionsExpand

Development of Methods to Measure Carbon Isotope Ratios of Bacterial Biomarkers in the Environment
Abstract The δ13C value of bacterial carbon is an important parameter in microbial ecology for studying the carbon flow within a microbial community and for the identification of ecological importantExpand
