Whats that fishy smell WHAT?S THAT FISHY SMELL? Trimethylaminuria was first discovered in 1970 by J.R. Humbert. It was found in a six-year-old girl with multiple pulmonary infections. A deficiency of trimethylamine-oxidase was shown in a liver biopsy. The mutated gene, which is responsible for the disease, was only recently inured by C.T. Dolphin in 1997 as the gene that codes for the enzyme flavin monooxygenase 3. In a normal person, dietary choline and trimethylamine-oxide are ingested and broken downward(a) by bacteria in the intestines, producing trimethylamine. This is then absorbed and transported to the liver.
It is oxidised in the liver by FMO3 to trimethylamine-N-oxide, which is odorless. It is then excreted in the urine. In a person with TMA, there is a diminishing FMO3 activity, resulting in the qualifying of oxidation of trimethylamine. There becomes an accumulation and massive excrement of trimethylamine in the urine and from areas of active sweating.
