Design and Analysis of Tracer Experiments—Biochemical Aspects
The major successes which have attended the application of isotopic tracer techniques to biology have occurred at the biochemical level and have been concerned with elaborating the fate of relatively small molecules in biosynthesis. This is because of the availability of adequate procedures for purification and characterization of the relatively simple molecules concerned. These procedures include not only synthetic and degradative methods based on organic chemistry, but specific analytic characterization using enzymologic techniques. We may enumerate briefly a few outstanding examples.
