TMAO formation in both animal models and humans requires gut microbes (8-11), and proceeds via gut microbe metabolism of either choline, betaine, or other trimethylamine (TMA) nutrients to initially form TMA, which is delivered to the liver via the portal circulation where it is rapidly converted by host hepatic flavin monooxygenase 3 into TMAO (8, 12-14).
