Bariatric surgery stirs symbionts to counteract diabesity by CA(7)Sting a liver-generated bile acid into the mix

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Obesity and diabetes are major health challenges for the 21st century. Effective treatments affect nutrient signaling along the gut microbiome-bile acid axis. In this issue of Cell, Chaudhari et al. demonstrate that a gut microbial secondary bile acid stimulates hepatic synthesis of a sulfated bile acid with anti-diabetic properties.
