Indoles from commensal bacteria extend healthspan: a recent study presented by Prof. Jones

Jones rheinallt2 targeting microbiotaA recently published article in PNAS by Sonowal et al. demonstrated that indole generated by intestinal E. coli boosts mobility and resilience in C. elegans, Drosophila, and mice.

These influences were particularly evident during the later stages of organismal lifespans. The results propose that indoles are ancient messenger molecules whereby the microbiota elicits its positive influence on health.

The article’s corresponding author is Dr Dan Kalman of Emory University, and during the ISM meeting, Dr Rheinallt Jones who is a co-author on the manuscript will discuss these findings.
