Interleukin (IL)-17 plays a critical role in the pathogenesis of inflammation and autoimmune diseases. The aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR) is a transcription factor responsible for the elimination of xenobiotic chemicals. However, it remains unknown whether AHR is involved in IL-17...

The endocrine disruptor and food contaminant bisphenol A (BPA) is frequently present in consumer plastics and can produce several adverse health effects participating in the development of inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. Regulatory restrictions have been established to prevent risks for...

We examined the effects of gut microbial catabolites of tryptophan on the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR). Using a reporter gene assay, we show that all studied catabolites are low-potency agonists of human AhR. The efficacy of catabolites differed substantially, comprising...

Despite broad appreciation of their clinical utility, it has been unclear how vitamin B12 and folic acid (FA) function at the molecular level to directly prevent their hallmark symptoms of deficiency like anemia or birth defects. To this point, B12...
