    apologies if this has been discussed before ... there are several threads on inflammation and serotonin metabolism and related issues so wasn't sure where to post.

    btw indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase (IDO) is already overexpressed in chronic infectious/inflammatory states (via interferon), so most likely implicated in ME. Wondering what happens in the scenario above in cases where this pathway is already dysfunctional or stressed or somehow blocked?

    So instead of more energy (NAD) following excercise because of this blockage/dysfunction in the pathway we get more toxic metabolites of that pathway - kynurenic and quinolinic acids??


    For the brave :) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:KP_pathway.jpg

    If I read this correctly, we finally know why rats get depressed after running on treadmills. :nerd:
