Use of Labeled Nonmetabolized Amino Acids in Biochemical Research
The biochemical investigator usually is pleased to find that a large quantity of C14 or other tracer atom has been transferred from his starting compound to another substance. This article will consider a group of compounds for which metabolic modification to other substances can scarcely be detected, and the experimental applications which this property may permit.
