- ... Measurement of rates ofin vivo substrate oxidation such as that of glucose, fatty acids and amino acids, are based on tracer (¹⁴C or¹³C) data, and often depend on the isotopic content of expired CO₂. The recovery of tracer-labelled CO₂ generated from the oxidation of¹³C labelled substrates may not be 100% over short term. This can lead to underestimation of oxidation rate of substrates, and conseq ...
