This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Microbiome Metabolic Pathways and Disease provides insight into the interaction of microbial metabolic pathways in the human body and the impact these can have on a variety of diseases. By analyzing these pathways the book seeks to investigate how these metabolic processes can be targeted and manipulated in order to treat various disorders and diseases. Topics covered in the book include microbial shikimate pathways, protein biosynthesis, tryptophan metabolites, microbiome metabolic engineering, fecal microbiota transplantation, and virulence factors. Additionally, a variety of conditions are covered, such as disorders associated with metabolic syndromes, serotonin syndromes, Alzheimer’s disease, and Covid-19, providing a detailed overview of how metabolic pathways of microbiome can impact health and disease in the human body. Explores microbial metabolic pathways in the human body and implications for disease Investigates specific steps involved in metabolic reactions in the human microbiome, including shikimate pathways and tryptophan pathways Considers a variety of diseases and disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease, metabolic syndromes, Crohn’s disease and Covid-19 Includes analysis of various amino acids and enzymes in microbial and human cells and how these can impact health
