tri·meth·yl·am·ine

(trī-meth'il-am'ēn),
A degradation product, often by putrefaction, of nitrogenous plant and animal substances (for example, beet sugar residue or herring brine); in the body, it probably results from decomposition of choline.

trimethylamine

a smelly substance that taints milk. Formed in sugar beet residues by the fermentation of betaine.

Trimethylamine N-oxide, a metabolite associated with atherosclerosis, exhibits complex genetic and dietary regulation.
Red meat is rich in a nutrient called L-carnitine which is broken down by gut bacteria to form the harmful chemical named trimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO).
Some bacteria found in both mouse and human guts turn choline into trimethylamine, or TMA.
There are several compounds grouped in classes that interact directly with components of the ERS (salubrinal, BiP inducer X (BIX), salicylamide analogs, flavonoids, guanabenz, and STF083010), chemical chaperons (4-phenylbutyric acid (PBA), tauroursodeoxycholic acid (TUDCA), and trimethylamine oxide (TMAO)), chemicals that inhibit protein degradation (Eeyarestatin, MG132, and Bortezomib), compounds with antioxidant activity (Edaravone, dibenzoylmethane derivatives, and N-acetyl cysteine (NAC)), and drugs controlling calcium signaling (dantrolene and carbazole derivatives) [166].
This novel approach centers around the research team's previous discovery that TMAO -- trimethylamine N-oxide, a byproduct formed in the gut during digestion of animal fats -- is linked to atherosclerosis and heart disease.

Phosphatidylcholine (also known as lecithin), choline, betaine, and L-carnitine, which are abundant in both red meat and dairy products, participate in intestinal microorganism metabolism and are converted to trimethylamine (TMA).
