A male pheromone-mediated trade-off between female preferences for genetic compatibility and sexual attractiveness in rats

Introduction Chemosensory signals play a vital role in socio-sexual interactions of rodents. Females rely heavily on chemosensory signals to evaluate genetic similarity and quality of potential mates, but their olfactory preferences for these criteria often conflict in mate choice. Results Using two inbred strains of rats, Brown Norway (BB) and Lewis (LL) and their F1 reciprocal...

Urine-Derived Key Volatiles May Signal Genetic Relatedness in Male Rats

Olfactory cues play a vital role in kin recognition and mate choice of the rat. Here, using 2 inbred strains of rats, Brown Norway (BN) and Lewis, as models to simulate kinship via genetic distance, we examined whether urine-derived volatiles are genetically determined, and, if so, how they code for olfactory information and the degree of genetic relatedness in mate choice...
