Goats have a well-developed vomeronasal (VN) system and exhibit pheromone-induced reproductive facilitation, but there are no reports on the projection pattern of VN neurons in this species. Rodent, guinea pig and opossum accessory olfactory bulbs (AOBs) have been shown to have a segregated pattern of projection of the VN neurons, which express the two alpha-subtypes of the G-protein, namely Gi2 and Go, to the rostral and caudal regions of the AOB, respectively. In this study we investigated… Expand
Morphological evidence for two types of Mammalian vomeronasal system.
TLDR
The results suggest that many mammals have uniform-type VN systems, and at least two types of Vn systems exist in terrestrial mammals. Expand
Fetal development of vomeronasal system in the goat.
TLDR
The morphologically observed fetal development of the goat accessory olfactory bulb and VN neuron suggests that the goat VN system is ontogenetically distinct from the rodent and opossum VN systems, and is underdeveloped before birth. Expand
A detailed morphological study of the vomeronasal organ and the accessory olfactory bulb of cats
The organization of the vomeronasal system (VNS) of fetal, newborn, and adult cats was investigated by microdissection and microscopic examination of sections stained conventionally or with lectinsExpand
Histological properties of the glomerular layer in the mouse accessory olfactory bulb.
TLDR
The unique histological properties of the mouse AOB summerized in the present review may give some useful information that may help in understanding the function of the mammalian VS. Expand
Morphological and immunohistochemical study of the rabbit vomeronasal organ
TLDR
The notion that the rabbit possesses a highly developed VNO, with many specific morphological features, which highlights the significance of chemocommunication in this species is supported. Expand
Immunohistochemistry of the canine vomeronasal organ
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the canine vomeronasal organ contains a population of cells that expresses several neuronal markers and GAP43 immunoreactivity suggests that the sensory epithelium is neurogenic in adult dogs. Expand
Immunohistochemistry of the canine vomeronasal organ
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the canine vomeronasal organ contains a population of cells that expresses several neuronal markers and GAP43 immunoreactivity suggests that the sensory epithelium is neurogenic in adult dogs. Expand
Morphological and histological features of the vomeronasal organ in the brown bear
TLDR
The VNO in the brown bear, especially the secretory system, is morphologically well‐developed, suggesting that this organ is significant for information transmission in this species. Expand
Morphological and Immunohistochemical Features of the Vomeronasal System in Dogs
Each of the structures integrating the sense of smell in mammals has a different degree of development, even in the so‐called macrosmatic animals, according to the capacity of the olfactory system toExpand
Expression of neuron-specific markers by the vomeronasal neuroepithelium in six species of primates.
TLDR
It is established that two strepsirrhine species and at least some New World haplorhines have mature sensory neurons in the VNO, and that Saguinus geoffroyi VNO expresses these markers in only a few cells. Expand

Subclasses of vomeronasal receptor neurons: differential expression of G proteins (Giα2 and Goα) and segregated projections to the accessory olfactory bulb
TLDR
The results suggest that the existence of at least two subclasses of receptor neurons in the vomeronasal epithelium with differential projections to the AOB is a conserved feature among mammals. Expand
Segregated pathways in the vomeronasal system
TLDR
Recent studies indicate that there are physiological and behavioral correlates to the dichotomous vomeronasal system, and both with lectin binding and immunoreactivity to monoclonal antibodies raised against carbohydrate moieties. Expand

The results suggest that the existence of at least two subclasses of receptor neurons in the vomeronasal epithelium with differential projections to the AOB is a conserved feature among mammals. Expand
Variable Patterns of Axonal Projections of Sensory Neurons in the Mouse Vomeronasal System
TLDR
This work has employed gene targeting technology to introduce mutations in a putative pheromone receptor gene, VR2, in the germline of mice, and shows that VR2 is monoallelically expressed in a given neuron. Expand

TLDR
The equivocal evidence claiming a vestigial or absent organ in humans is reviewed and based upon anatomical considerations, the sensory epithelium of Jacobson's organ is one of five possible sensory components within the nasal cavity. Expand

TLDR
The findings suggest that spatially segregated subsets of VNO neurons may use different, but related, sensory transduction pathways in which G-proteins and an adenylyl cyclase play major roles. Expand
A Map of Pheromone Receptor Activation in the Mammalian Brain
TLDR
Observations indicate that the organization of the vomeronasal sensory afferents is dramatically different from that of the main olfactory system, and these differences have important implications for the logic of Olfactory coding in the vomeenasal organ. Expand
Flehmen and vomeronasal organ function in male goats
TLDR
It was concluded that, if the dye represented a behaviorally significant non-volatile material (sex attractant), only the goats that showed flehmen would have detected the material from VNO chemoreception. Expand
Chronic recording of vomeronasal pump activation in awake behaving hamsters
TLDR
Electrodes, implanted inside the vomeronasal organ capsule of male hamsters, recorded changes in electrical properties accompanying vomer onasal pump activation, which suggest that blood vessels are constricted repetitively by bursts of activity in the vasomotor sympathetic nerves each time the pump is triggered.
