Pheromone signals regulate conspecific behavior and physiology [1]. Releaser pheromones induce specific behavior by exerting acute effects on the neuronal response, whereas primer pheromones induce physiological changes with long-lasting effects by changing the neuroendocrine status of the recipients. In mammals, although several types of releaser pheromones have been identified [2-5], the identities of primer pheromones, as well as their mechanisms of action, remain largely unknown [6].
