Microbial metabolites as mimickers of human molecules - Nature.com

Posted By BioSocrates on synthetic biology

http://news.google.com - Microbial metabolites as mimickers of human moleculesNature.comA new study has found that gut bacteria produce metabolites — N-acyl amides — that interact with G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) and mimic human GPCR ligands, providing clues to how microbial metabolites might regulate host physiology. The links ...and more »
