To identify the microbes responsible for TMA generation, the microbial species localized to the human intestinal tract were cultured with choline in vitro ; Anaerococcus hydrogenalis, Clostridium asparagiforme, Clostridium hathewayi, Clostridium sporogenes, Escherichia fergusonii, Proteus penneri, Providencia rettgeri, and Edwardsiella tarda consumed choline and generated TMA.
A total of 95 anaerobic isolates were identified, including gram-positive cocci (predominantly Anaerococcus spp.
