Abstract
    In this study, the free amino acid composition of 21 deep-sea symbiotic species from different ecological and geological contexts were compared in order to determine specific features related to symbiosis or to environmental conditions. Three sulphur-amino acids were found in high amounts in the species studied : taurine, hypotaurine and thiotaurine. The possible involvement of these sulphur-amino acids in the metabolism of sulphur was also investigated by measuring their concentrations during sulphide exposure.
