Shared Reference Notes
- increase in Veillonella relative abundance in marathon runners postmarathon.
- Veillonella utilize lactate as their sole carbon source > at higher relative abundance postexercise > convert lactate to propionate.
- V. atypica improves run time via its metabolic conversion of exercise-induced lactate into propionate, thereby identifying a natural, microbiome-encoded enzymatic process that enhances athletic performance.
- intrarectal instillation of propionate in mouse is sufficient to reproduce the increased treadmill run time performance observed with V. atypica gavage.
