April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online How do you look for your perfect mate? Perhaps you take long walks on the beach, share a candlelight dinner, have a virtual date on Skype; or maybe it's smelling that scent of just the right perfume. When it comes to finding the perfect mate in the insect world, especially for a member of one particular wasp species, it only takes a whiff of the special love potion to know you have found "Mr. Right." Most insects rely on their...

Scientists at the University of Liverpool have found that male mice produce a pheromone that provokes females and competitor males to remember a preference for the place where the pheromone was previously encountered. Some animals, such as moths, use a sensitive tracking system to trace airborne sex pheromones to the source, while others, such as snakes, follow trails of pheromones left on the ground. A team from the University's Institute of Integrative Biology has discovered that mice...

[Watch Video: Newborn Mice Depend On Mom's Signature Scent] April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Sometimes, not finding what you are looking for can lead to even more interesting avenues of research. That is what a recent international research team found out when they were searching for a pheromone trigger for newborn infant suckling responses in mice. The results of their study have been published in the journal, Current Biology. Long-held wisdom has been that...

Gene Mutation In Male Moth Allows It To Detect Female Even When Scent Is Altered

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Because of a single gene mutation on the antenna of a male moth, he is able to receive a female moth´s Hail Mary pheromone pass from end zone-to-end zone even if she were to alter its scent. According to a report published this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), a team of researchers led by Montana State University entomologist Kevin Wanner identified the gene in male moths responsible for...

A new study has shown that boosting the estrogen levels of male garter snakes causes them to secrete the same pheromones that females use to attract suitors, and turned the males into just about the sexiest snake in the neighborhood — attracting dozens of other males eager to mate. This experiment in the famed garter snake caverns of Manitoba, Canada, was one of the first in a field setting to ever quantify the effects of estrogen as a stimulant of pheromones, scientists said, in...

Male flies find romance with female flies coated with pheromone, regardless of age; U-M, international research sheds light on aging process Beauty is more than skin deep, at least for fruit flies studied in new research that demonstrates how age-related changes in pheromone production can reduce sexual attractiveness. The study, published Feb. 9 in The Journal of Experimental Biology, examined how pheromones play a role in the sexual attractiveness and aging process of the common fruit...

Aging takes its toll on sex appeal and now an international team of researchers led by Baylor College of Medicine and the University of Michigan find that in fruit flies, at least, it even diminishes the come-hither effect of the chemicals of love — pheromones. "This is new because we have direct evidence that the pheromones produced at these different ages affect sexual attractiveness differently," said Tsung-Han Kuo, a graduate student in the department of molecular and human...

A North Carolina State University discovery of the unique chemical composition of a cockroach signal — a "Let's hook up" sex pheromone emitted by certain female wood cockroaches to entice potential mates — could have far-ranging benefits, including improved conservation of an endangered woodpecker. Dr. Coby Schal, Blanton J. Whitmire Professor of Entomology at NC State and the corresponding author of a paper describing the discovery, says that the study, published the week of...

Pheromone preference, and the initiation of a complex programmed sexual behavior, is determined by the specificity of a single sex pheromone receptor protein expressed in a population of olfactory receptor neurons in the silkmoth (Bombyx mori). The study, which will be published on June 30th in the open-access journal PLoS Genetics, provides the first direct proof of the long-held belief that the control of sexual behavior in male moths originates in the chemical specificity of the pheromone...

The capybara (also capibara) (Hydrochoerus hydrochaeris) is a semi-aquatic herbivorous animal, the largest of living rodents. It is endemic to most of the tropical and temperate parts of South America east of the Andes. It has been introduced to north-central Florida and possibly other subtropical regions in the United States. It is the only living member of the family Hydrochoeridae. Description and habits Full-grown capybaras reach between 40 to 55 inches (105 and 135 cm) long, and...
