BacterioFiles Micro Edition 145 - Clostridium Converts Cortisol

This episode: Gut bacteria may convert cortisol into important human hormones!

(6 MB, 6.5 minutes)

Note: Episode 144 is now available too. Sorry about that. Not sure what went wrong there, but it is regrettable.

A minor player in the gut, Clostridium scindens, seems to be able to convert glucocorticoids into male sex hormones. It is unclear what role this plays in health.
