Indoleamine-2,3-dioxygenase 1 or IDO or IDO-1 is more commonly known as IDO1 is an enzyme in the kynurenine pathway involved in the metabolism of the essential amino acid tryptophan to N-formyl kynurenine.[1][2] The gene encoding IDO1 is also sometimes referred to as IDO1.[1]

ME/CFS - An acronym that combines myalgic encephalomyelitis with chronic fatigue syndrome. Sometimes they are combined because people have trouble distinguishing one from the other. Sometimes they are combined because people see them as synonyms of each other.

metabolic trap hypothesis - An hypothesis which proposes that the normal metabolic functioning of the cell has become "trapped" in an abnormal state, which may lead to body-wide symptoms.
