Phytoplankton‐derived zwitterionic gonyol and dimethylsulfonioacetate interfere with microbial dimethylsulfoniopropionate sulfur cycling

Abstract The marine sulfur cycle is substantially fueled by the phytoplankton osmolyte dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP). This metabolite can be metabolized by bacteria, which results in the emission of the volatile sulfur species methanethiol (MeSH) and the climate‐cooling dimethylsulfide (DMS). It...
