Abstract

A forthcoming article in Nature reveals that inflammasome deficiency disturbs gut microbiota and predisposes to diet-induced obesity and liver disease. The aberrant microbiota and its consequences could be transferred by cohousing mutant and wild-type mice, suggesting that some aspects of metabolic syndrome can be communicable.
