The scientists also tracked the movement of nitrogen fertilizers by monitoring labelled nitrogen-15 stable isotopes atoms with extra or missing neutrons in the soil to determine how effectively the crops are responding to and taking up the fertilizer.
Like their modern elephant counterparts, they should have been restricted to a diet of plants, but their bones reveal levels of nitrogen-15 ([sup.
That hint is the ratio of one isotope, or form, of nitrogen, called nitrogen-14, to another isotope, called nitrogen-15.
The stable isotopes market is dominated by deuterium (D2), oxygen-18 (O-18), carbon-13 (C-13), and nitrogen-15 (N-15).
Over time, nitrogen-15 in the soil decreased slowly, with small amounts taken up by plants or leached into groundwater each year.

Although recent developments in nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) have revolutionized structure determinations by incorporating stable isotopes carbon-13 (13C) and nitrogen-15 (15N) into the target proteins, prior to the development of Martek's Celtone M technology, "glycoproteins" have not been labeled with these stable isotopes.
