Tryptophan metabolites get the gut moving

Abstract

How gut microbes can regulate the enteric nervous system and gut-brain communications is a field of intense research. In this issue of Cell Host & Microbe, Ye et al. demonstrate that bacteria can control intestinal motility and vagal neuronal activation via tryptophan catabolites through the receptor TrpA1 of enteroendocrine cells.
