At least nine genes, encoding three protein transcriptional factors--FosB (Brown, Ye, Bronson, Dikkes, & Greeberg, 1996), Peg3 (Li et al., 1999) and Fkh5 (Wehr, Mansouri, Maeyer, & Gruss, 1997); three enzymes--Mest/pegl (Lefebvre et al., 1998), Dbh (Thomas & Palmiter, 1997) and nNOS (Gammie & Nelson, 1999); two receptors ERa (Lubahn et al., 1993) and PrlR (Leckman & Herman, 2002); and one neuropeptide--OT (Nishimori et al., 1996) have been identified to be necessary for the expression of maternal behavior.
