Early diagenesis of protein : A seasonal study

Abstract

The diagenetic behavior of proteins, defined as large polypeptides, was examined over a 2-yr period at a mudflat site subject to intense bioturbation. Protein concentrations in the surface sediment correlated well with deposition of algal detritus from the water column. Cellular biomass made up a significant, though likely not a major, component of protein… (More)
