Evidence is provided that the non-pseudoautosomal region of the Y is not involved and that only the pseudoautosome region ofThe Y is correlated with initiation of attack behavior, which is related to sexual dimorphism of aggression.

Comparisons across 13 inbred strains of laboratory mice for reproductive organ weights indicated a very marked contrast between the C57BL/6By and NZB/BINJ mice, indicating that the Y( NPAR) interacts with the non-Y(NPAR) genes.
Y chromosome and aggression in strains of laboratory mice
The association between testosterone action and attack behavior in males needs further evidence, and in any case this association does not underline linear mechanisms.

It is concluded that monkey germ cells are able to internalize the human sex steroid-binding protein through specific endocytic organelles, suggesting that steroids-binding proteins may be required for spermatogenesis in acting at the germ cell lineage level either by themselves or by serving as steroid transmembrane carriers.
Murine steroid sulfatase gene expression in the brain during postnatal development and adulthood
Steroid control of higher brain function and behavior
The relationship between steroids and cerebral function may need reconsidering in light of the recent discovery of a biosynthetic pathway (independently of peripheral sources) of steroidal compounds ensuring the synthesis of neurosteroids from cholesterol in certain brain cells.
