    Behav Genet 38:55-66. 2008
    ..We conclude that it is unlikely that these genes play a major role in the variation in aggression in the Golden Retrievers that we studied. Smaller phenotypic effects of these loci could not be ruled out with our sample size...

    J Hered 96:786-96. 2005
    ..We genotyped the htr1A SNPs in 41 dogs of seven breeds with diverse behavioral characteristics. At least three SNP haplotypes were found. Our results do not support involvement of the gene in domestication...

    Behav Genet 36:882-902. 2006
    ..3 years, over 50% of the dogs had become less aggressive. Third, we analyzed data obtained with an aggression test of 83 dogs. Two out of the three CBARQ aggression factors were also found in the aggression test data...

    ..Htr1A is estimated to be located about 7.3 Mb from smn1 on cfa02. In addition, we report a possible breed-specific variant of the gene in four golden retrievers...
