Hi kittycat

This is a areally interesting paper as it's the first that describes enzymes in bacteria that are able to convert choline to trimethylamine in the absence of oxygen as would be found in our lower bowel. We are still trying to obtain funding to identify those bacteria that might be responsible for this conversion and this paper will help us in that aim.
