Abstract

Felicity Kuek studied dimethylsulphoniopropionate (DMSP) metabolism within the coral holobiont focusing on the role of coral-associated bacteria in the production of DMSP, and the possible functions of its catabolic product, acrylate. She found that coral-associated bacteria are important contributors to the total pool of organic sulphur compounds within the holobiont and revealed a novel link between acrylate and the mechanism of calcification of the coral skeleton.
