Abstract. Microbial cycling of volatile organic sulfur compounds (VOSCs), especially dimethyl sulfide (DMS) and methanethiol (MT), is intensively studied because these compounds play an important role in the processes of global warming, acid precipitation, and the global sulfur cycle. VOSC concentrations in freshwater sediments are low due to the balance between the formation and degradation of these compounds. These reactions occur for the greater part at the oxic/anoxic interphase of sediment… Expand
Environmental VOSCs--formation and degradation of dimethyl sulfide, methanethiol and related materials.
TLDR
This review emphasizes the chemical reactions of the organic sulfur cycle and details of relevant enzymes are provided when possible for biotic reactions. Expand
Microbial conversion of inorganic carbon to dimethyl sulfide in anoxic lake sediment (Plußsee, Germany)
Abstract. In anoxic environments, volatile methylated sulfides like methanethiol (MT) and dimethyl sulfide (DMS) link the pools of inorganic and organic carbon with the sulfur cycle. However, directExpand
Effect of dimethyl disulfide on the sulfur formation and microbial community composition during the biological H2S removal from sour gas streams.
TLDR
Addition of DMDS resulted in significant inhibition of sulfate formation, leading to 96 mol% of sulfur formation, and a reduction in the dominating haloalkaliphilic SOB species, Thioalkalivibrio sulfidiphilus, was observed in favor of ThIOalkaibacter halophilus as a more DMDS-tolerant. Expand
Quadruple sulfur isotope constraints on the origin and cycling of volatile organic sulfur compounds in a stratified sulfidic lake
AbstractWe have quantified the major forms of volatile organic sulfur compounds (VOSCs) distributed in the water column ofstratified freshwater Fayetteville Green Lake (FGL), to evaluate theExpand
Dimethyl sulphide and methanethiol formation in microbial mats: potential pathways for biogenic signatures.
TLDR
Volatile organic sulphur compounds are indicators of high rates of carbon fixation and sulphate reduction in these laminated sediment ecosystems, and atmospheric sulphur can be generated as a biogenic signature of the microbial mat community. Expand
A novel bacterial sulfur oxidation pathway provides a new link between the cycles of organic and inorganic sulfur compounds
TLDR
These findings fill a long-standing knowledge gap in microbial dissimilatory sulfur metabolism because the Hdr-like pathway is abundant not only in chemoheterotrophs, but also in a wide range of chemo- and photolithoautotrophic sulfur oxidizers acting as key players in global sulfur cycling. Expand
Methylotrophic methanogenesis and potential methylated substrates in marine sediment
TLDR
Methane is the simplest hydrocarbon and a potent greenhouse gas that plays important roles in atmospheric chemistry, the global carbon cycle, and the formation of gas hydrates in marine sediment, while methylotrophic methanogenesis and its relative importance for methane production in marine sediments remain largely unconstrained.

Methyl sulfides as intermediates in the anaerobic oxidation of methane.
TLDR
Incubations of seep sediments demonstrate, as would be expected from this model, that methanethiol inhibits AOM and that CO can be substituted for CH(4) as the electron donor for methylogenesis. Expand

Microbial Populations Involved in Cycling of Dimethyl Sulfide and Methanethiol in Freshwater Sediments
TLDR
The data from sediment incubation experiments, MPN series, and molecular-genetics detection correlated well and provide convincing evidence for the suggested mechanisms for MT and DMS cycling and the common presence of the DMS-degrading methanogen M. hollandica in freshwater sediments. Expand
Formation of dimethyl sulfide and methanethiol in anoxic freshwater sediments
TLDR
Findings and the observed stimulation of methanethiol formation in sediment slurry incubations provided strong evidence that the anaerobic methylation of hydrogen sulfide is the main mechanism for VOSC formation in most freshwater systems. Expand
Methylated sulfur compounds in microbial mats: in situ concentrations and metabolism by a colorless sulfur bacterium.
TLDR
Continuous culture studies in which DMS was the growth-limiting substrate revealed a maximum specific growth rate of 0.10 h-1 and a saturation constant of 90 mumol liter-1 for aerobic growth on this substrate. Expand

A novel anaerobic bacterium is isolated that was able to degrade syringate in significant amounts only in the presence of sulfide, and is a member of the XIVa cluster of the low-GC-contentClostridiales group. Expand
Role of Methanogens and Other Bacteria in Degradation of Dimethyl Sulfide and Methanethiol in Anoxic Freshwater Sediments
TLDR
Evidence is provided for methanogenesis as a major sink for MT and DMS in freshwater sediments and for a competition between sulfate-reducing and methanogenic bacteria for DMS or MT takes place in sulphate-rich freshwater systems. Expand

The results indicate the methanogens and sulfate reducers compete for DMS when it is present at low concentrations; however, at high concentrations, DMS is a "noncompetitive" substrate for methanogenesis. Expand
