Editorial Reviews

Proceedings of the June 1995 symposium, covering topics related to dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP) and providing background and the latest research on the subject. DMSP and related sulfonium compounds are of interest to biological chemists because they are used by organisms to combat osmotic stress; they are potential methyl donors; and they form a large pool of organic sulfur in some environments. Paper topics include NMR spectroscopy as a probe for DMSP in phytoplankton cells, and DMSO as a significant compound in the biogeochemical cycle of DMS. Of interest to oceanographers, biochemists, microbiologists, and plant physiologists. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
