Title:
Uncovering the trimethylamine-producing bacteria of the human gut microbiota.
Authors:
Rath, Silke; Heidrich, Benjamin; Pieper, Dietmar H; Vital, Marius ( 0000-0003-4185-3475 )
Abstract:
Trimethylamine (TMA), produced by the gut microbiota from dietary quaternary amines (mainly choline and carnitine), is associated with atherosclerosis and severe cardiovascular disease. Currently, little information on the composition of TMA producers in the gut is available due to their low abundance and the requirement of specific functional-based detection methods as many taxa show disparate abilities to produce that compound.
