Rats were raised on a variety of isotopically controlled diets comprising 20% C 3, C4 or marine protein and C3 and/or C4 non-protein or energy (i.e. sucrose, starch and oil) macronutrients. Compound specific stable carbon isotope ( C) analysis was performed on the cholesterol isolated from the diet ( n 7) and bone ( n 15) of these animals and the values compared with bulk C measurements of bone collagen and apatite. The dietary signals reflected by these three bone biochemical components were… CONTINUE READING
