iollo markers that associate with Chlamydia*


Kynurenine is a metabolite produced from tryptophan catabolism. Chlamydia infection upregulates IDO activity, increasing the conversion of tryptophan to kynurenine.


Chlamydia infection can lead to increased tryptophan catabolism via indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase (IDO) enzyme activity, resulting in lower tryptophan levels.
