An antioxidant function for DMSP and DMS in marine algae
The algal osmolyte dimethylsulphoniopropionate (DMSP) and its enzymatic cleavage product dimethylsulphide (DMS) contribute significantly to the global sulphur cycle, yet their physiological functionsExpand

The Marine Microbial Eukaryote Transcriptome Sequencing Project (MMETSP): Illuminating the Functional Diversity of Eukaryotic Life in the Oceans through Transcriptome Sequencing
Current sampling of genomic sequence data from eukaryotes is relatively poor, biased, and inadequate to address important questions about their biology, evolution, and ecology; this Community PageExpand

New and important roles for DMSP in marine microbial communities
Abstract The algal osmolyte dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP) is recognised as the major precursor of marine dimethylsulfide (DMS), a volatile sulfur compound that affects atmospheric chemistry andExpand

Silicibacter pomeroyi sp. nov. and Roseovarius nubinhibens sp. nov., dimethylsulfoniopropionate-demethylating bacteria from marine environments.
Three Gram-negative, rod-shaped, aerobic bacteria that were capable of degrading dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP) were isolated from marine waters. These isolates (DSS-3(T), DSS-10 and ISM(T))Expand

Genome sequence of Silicibacter pomeroyi reveals adaptations to the marine environment
Since the recognition of prokaryotes as essential components of the oceanic food web, bacterioplankton have been acknowledged as catalysts of most major biogeochemical processes in the sea. StudyingExpand

Comparison of microbial dynamics in marine and freshwater sediments: Contrasts in anaerobic carbon catabolism1
The microbiota of freshwater and marine sediments serve similar roles in carbon degradation and nutrient regeneration. However, because of differences in the chemical environment between freshwaterExpand

Contribution of SAR11 Bacteria to Dissolved Dimethylsulfoniopropionate and Amino Acid Uptake in the North Atlantic Ocean
ABSTRACT SAR11 bacteria are abundant in marine environments, often accounting for 35% of total prokaryotes in the surface ocean, but little is known about their involvement in marine biogeochemicalExpand

Low dissolved DMSP concentrations in seawater revealed by small‐volume gravity filtration and dialysis sampling
A variety of filtration and passive dialysis protocols were tested with seawater for determination of the dissolved concentrations of dimethylsulfoniopropionate ( DMSPd), a compound originating inExpand

Bacterial Taxa That Limit Sulfur Flux from the Ocean
Flux of dimethylsulfide (DMS) from ocean surface waters is the predominant natural source of sulfur to the atmosphere and influences climate by aerosol formation. Marine bacterioplankton regulateExpand
