  1. doi Phenotypic differences in behavior, physiology and neurochemistry between rats selected for tameness and for defensive aggression towards humans
    Frank W Albert
    Department of Evolutionary Genetics, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig, Germany
    Horm Behav 53:413-21. 2008
    ..Our findings reinforce the notion that tameness is correlated with differences in stress response and will facilitate future efforts to uncover the genetic basis for animal tameness...
  2. pmc Genetic architecture of tameness in a rat model of animal domestication
    Frank W Albert
    Department of Genetics and Pathology, Uppsala University, 75123 Uppsala, Sweden
    Genetics 182:541-54. 2009
    ..The loci described here are important starting points for finding the genes that cause tameness in these rats and potentially in domestic animals in general...
  3. pmc Targeted resequencing of a genomic region influencing tameness and aggression reveals multiple signals of positive selection
    F W Albert
    Department of Evolutionary Genetics, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig, Germany
    Heredity (Edinb) 107:205-14. 2011
    ..Together, these results show that the QTL is probably not caused by a single selected site, but may instead represent the joint effects of several sites that were targets of polygenic selection...
  4. doi Comparative population genomics of the ejaculate in humans and the great apes
    Jeffrey M Good
    Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig, Germany
    Mol Biol Evol 30:964-76. 2013
    ..Thus, general patterns of male reproductive protein evolution among apes and humans depend strongly on gene function but not on inferred differences in the intensity of sperm competition among extant species...
  5. doi Expression of carnitine palmitoyl-CoA transferase-1B is influenced by a cis-acting eQTL in two chicken lines selected for high and low body weight
    Sojeong Ka
    Department of Neuroscience, Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden
    Physiol Genomics 45:367-76. 2013
    ..The altered expression of CPT1B in hypothalamus and peripheral tissue is likely to be a mechanism contributing to the remarkable difference between lines...
  6. pmc Targeted investigation of the Neandertal genome by array-based sequence capture
    Hernán A Burbano
    Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, D 04103 Leipzig, Germany
    Science 328:723-5. 2010
    ..By generating the sequence of one Neandertal and 50 present-day humans at these positions, we have identified 88 amino acid substitutions that have become fixed in humans since our divergence from the Neandertals...
  7. doi Differentially expressed genes in hypothalamus in relation to genomic regions under selection in two chicken lines resulting from divergent selection for high or low body weight
    Sojeong Ka
    Department of Neuroscience, Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden
    Neurogenetics 12:211-21. 2011
    ..Because of such differential gene expression in hypothalamus, the lines may adapt behaviourally different particularly to the post-hatch situation when independent feeding to obtain energy is established...
