  • Naturally occurring organosulfur compound.
  • Osmolyte, osmoprotectant.
  • Antioxidant.
  • Cryoprotectant.
  • Neuroprotective agent. Neuritogenic.
  • Acts against immune-deficient diseases (e.g. cancer).
  • Important in geochemistry, ecology and algal/plant physiology.
  • Chemoattractant for marine planktonic microbes and planktivorous reef fishes.
  • Metabolite produced primarily by marine phytoplankton and is the main precursor to the climatically important gas dimethylsulfide (DMS).
