Microbial Metabolites: A New Link to Parkinson’s Disease?

Published on September 23, 2023 in Environment International, a groundbreaking study from the Institute of Biological Chemistry and Centre for Microbiology and Environmental Systems Science (CeMESS) at the University of Vienna (Austria), in collaboration with the University of Konstanz (Germany), and the Albert Einstein College of Medicine (USA), reveals a microbial metabolite's role in inducing Parkinson's-like symptoms in human neuron cells. This discovery could reshape our understanding of the environmental triggers of Parkinson's disease. The open-access article is titled “Identification of the Bacterial Metabolite Aerugine As Potential Trigger of Human Dopaminergic Neurodegeneration.”
