In most mammals, pheromone perception mediates intraspecies interactions related to reproduction, such as mate recognition, intermale aggressive behaviors, or exchanges between females and their offspring. Recent molecular findings, particularly the identification of two large pheromone receptor gene superfamilies, provide today invaluable tools to better understand the way mammals make sense of pheromonal information.
