Abstract

δ-Acetylornithine was found to vary seasonally and in response to nitrogen availability in the rhizomes of the alpine herb, Bistorta bistortoides (Pursh). δ-Acetylornithine accounts for 38 % of the free amino acid pool and up to 12% of the total nitrogen in rhizomes. It is concluded that this compound plays an important role in nitrogen storage in this species.
