Methylated amines, such as trimethylamine (TMA) and trimethylamine N-oxide, are nitrogenous compounds that are thought to be ubiquitous in the marine environment. TMA is a product of the anaerobic degradation of quaternary amines, such as glycine betaine and choline. Through a set of complex chemical and biological interactions, methylated amines play a role in regulating the planet’s climate. Microbial degradation of methylated amines is thought to be a sink for these compounds in the marine… CONTINUE READING
