Abstract Background Myocardial infarction is the major cause of deaths worldwide. Gut bacteria can process choline as abundant in red meat and subsequently converted by flavin containing monooxygenase in the liver to trimethylamin-N-oxide (TMAO) metabolite, which is strongly associated with cardiovascular events.

Methods Forty-eight Apolipoprotein E deficient mice were randomly divided into two groups and two ..
