  • [1.1
    - Common commensal bacteria produce the volatile trimethylamine (TMA) by cleaving it from choline, carnitine, betaine, and phosphatidylcholine.
    - After reaching portal circulation and trafficking to the liver TMA is oxidized to trimethylamine-N-oxide (TMAO) by flavin-containing monooxygenases (FMOs), most predominantly FMO3
