Formation of indoleacetic acid by intestinal anaerobes.

PMID:  1236846     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Indoleacetic acid was produced from tryptophan by only three of 23 intestinal anaerobes studied. Evidence is presented to show that the formation of indoleacetic acid proceeds through the intermediate, indolepyruvic acid, via transamination with alpha-ketoglutarate rather than by tryptamine pathway.
