Until 1999 it was accepted that pheromones act exclusively by stimulating the dendritic receptors present in olfactory epithelium. Cycling gilts with an experimentally-disrupted neural olfactory pathway were used to test the hypothesis that boar pheromone 5alpha-androstenol may affect the secretion of hormones involved in the regulation of the estrous cycle… CONTINUE READING
