Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
In this project we focused on assortative mate choice, that may contribute to the reproductive isolation of the two European subspecies of the house mouse, Mus musculus musculus and Mus musculus domesticus. We developed full mating and limited-contact paradigms. We found that receptive musculus females exhibit a robust preference to mate with males of the same subspecies. However, they mate readily with each male in no choice condition, and non-receptive females exhibit no preference. Moreover, when no physical contact is allowed, the female’s preference is maintained regardless of their estrous state. These experiments establish an assortative mate preference assay appropriate for the investigation of its underlying substrates. Our results highlight the interplay between the chooser´s internal state and the nature of the interaction with prospective mates and suggests that the decision is based on a comparison of the options available, rather than on an absolute preference.
We then interrogated the ontogeny of this preference, by performing adoption experiments where musculus females were raised in a domesticus environment. Our results show that female mouse mate preference has a hierarchical dependence on early postnatal life experience and the order of males encountered as an adult. Whereas females raised in their normal musculus environment display a robust homosubspecific preference, females fostered in a domesticus family prefer the first male encountered, regardless of subspecies. Thus, early life experience of musculus females, when and only when concordant with genetic self-identify, overrides sampling order effects, ensuring robust assortative choice. In the absence of this phylogenetic-ontogenetic match, simple primacy effects dominate mate preference.

Mate choice in mus musculus is relative and dependent on the estrous state

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Mate choice is a critical behavioral decision process with profound impact on evolution. However, the mechanistic basis of mate choice is poorly understood. In this study we focused on assortative mate choice, which is known to contribute to the reproductive isolation of the two European subspecies of house mouse, Mus musculus musculus and Mus musculus domesticus. To understand the decision process, we developed both full mating and limited-contact paradigms and tested musculus females' preference for musculus versus domesticus males, mimicking the natural musculus/domesticus contact zone. As hypothesized, when allowed to mate we found that sexually receptive musculus females exhibited a robust preference to mate with musculus males. In contrast, when non-receptive, females did not exhibit a preference and rather alternated between males in response to male mount attempts. Moreover in a no-choice condition, females mated readily with males from both subspecies. Finally, when no physical contact was allowed, and therefore male's behavior could not influence female's behavior, female's preference for its own subspecies was maintained independently of the estrous state. Together, our results suggest that the assortative preference is relative and based on a comparison of the options available rather than on an absolute preference. The results of the limited-contact experiments highlight the interplay between female's internal state and the nature of the interaction with prospective mates in the full mating conditions. With these experiments we believe we established an assortative mate preference assay that is appropriate for the investigation of its underlying substrates.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Objectives: Mate choice is a key driving force of evolution but the proximate mechanisms allowing
mate assessment by the nervous system are still unknown. Our main goal is to understand how
mate value is represented in the female brain.
Methods: In order to understand how mate value and preferences are represented in the brain,
we have established a behavioral paradigm where the subjective value of prospective mates can
be manipulated. Our behavioral paradigm takes advantage of a natural situation occurring in
Europe where two subspecies of mouse, Mus musculus musculus and M. m. domesticus, form a
narrow hybrid zone, and show asymmetric mate choice. By using inbred strains of wild-derived
and laboratory mice we were able to translate this situation into laboratory conditions and to
control female preference in a reproducible way. We investigated mate preference behavior of
musculus females for musculus versus domesticus males in two different paradigms, which either
allowed females to actually mate or only to smell the males through perforated partitions (limited
contact paradigm) preventing the male's behavior to have an influence on female's choice.
Results: In both cases, musculus females exhibited a strong homosubspecific preference, as the
one found in nature, which was revealed by the number of mounts and ejaculations they received
from musculus / domesticus males (in the full contact paradigm) and by the relative time spent by
females near the males (in both paradigms). However if musculus females are fostered in a
domesticus environment at birth, this homosubspecific preference is disrupted in the adulthood,
suggesting that early experience plays a critical role in setting individual mate preference in mice.
Discussion: This result suggests that imprinting may be one of the mechanisms by which
assortative mating is generated, and reproductive isolation maintained, at the musculus /
domesticus hybrid zone. While similar phenomena have been documented in fish and birds this is
the first time, to our knowledge, that imprinting is shown to be involved in setting conspecific
mate preferences in a mammalian species. As females reared in a musculus or a domesticus
environment show different mate preferences, we can now compare the neuronal representation
of the same stimulus male which has a different value in these two types of females. We are
currently taking the first steps to explore which brain regions might underlie this behavioral
preference.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Through crossfostering experiments between two subspecies of mice, Moreira et al. show that females normally undergo sexual imprinting early in life. When fostered by individuals from another subspecies, they tend to prefer males from the sub-species they first encounter, suggesting sexual imprinting normally over-rides this inclination.
