dc.description.abstract <p>Carbon isotope ratios (expressed as <em>δ</em>13C values) were determined for various sources of starch and the starch fractions amylose and amylopectin. The <em>δ</em>13C values of amylose were consistently less negative, 0.4–2.3 ‰, than those of amylopectin in kernal starch from maize (<em>Zea mays</em>) and barley (<em>Hordeum vulgare</em>) and in tuber starch from potato (<em>Solanum tuberosum</em>). Kernel starch isolated from the maize mutants <em>wx1</em> and <em>ae1</em>, with known genetic lesions in the starch biosynthetic pathway, also showed significant differences in <em>δ</em>13C values. Collectively, these results suggest that variation in carbon isotope ratios in the amylose and amylopectin components of starch may be attributed to isotopic discrimination by the enzymes involved in starch biosynthesis.</p>
