Molecular detection of pheromone signals in mammals: from genes to behaviour

  title={Molecular detection of pheromone signals in mammals: from genes to behaviour},
  author={C. Capdevielle Dulac and A. Thomas Torello},
  journal={Nature Reviews Neuroscience},
The instinctive and species-specific behavioural response of animals to pheromones has intrigued biologists for a long time. Recent molecular and electrophysiological approaches have provided new insights into the mechanisms of pheromone detection in rodents and into the sensory coding of pheromone signals that lead to gender discrimination and aggressive behaviour.
