It turned out that monogamy can influence genes.
Scientists have discovered genes that may be responsible for monogamous behavior in animals, reports citing .
Researchers have long been concerned with the causes of monogamy in animals. It used to be that she becomes a consequence of social and cultural conditions, however, after it became clear that “monogamous” are not only among people, scientists began to elucidate other aspects of the phenomenon.
Biologists from the University of Texas (USA), studies have found “faithful” males rodents similar sets of genes. As expected, the “monogamy genes” could appear as a result of evolution.
“We show that very similar mechanisms of gene expression involved in the transition from non-monogamous to monogamous,” – said biologist of the University of Texas Rebecca young.
Most closely associated with the occurrence of monogamy about 24 genes, however, according to Yang, they could be hundreds. It is interesting that monogamous males are the most active genes involved in nervous system development, learning and memory formation.
However, to associate mokonami affect genes and how individual faithful to your partner, as of yet, warn the researchers.Monogamy in nature, occurs in most birds and some mammals and even insects.
