Erratum.

Reports an error in the original article by I. Le Roy et al (Behavior Genetics, 1999 [March], Vol 29(2), 125-136). In Table II, (a) that correlations with latencies were computed from transformed raw data should be added, and (b) -0.89 should be read 0.89** and 0.71* should be read -0.71. (The following abstract of this article originally appeared in record 1999-03104-006.): The pairing region of the X-Y chromosomes recombines at male meiosis. The authors previously found that offensive behavior in male mice, measured by initiation of attack against a conspecific male, was linked to this region. Only 1 functional gene (coding for steroid sulfatase or Sts) is mapped on this region as of yet, suggesting that it could be a candidate for offensive behavior. The authors estimated the genetic correlation between the concentration of STS protein in the liver and the initiation of attack behavior in 11 strains of inbred mice. The high correlation (close to reliability) coefficient of the behavioral phenotype indicates the implication of STS in offense behavior. Recent investigations have demonstrated the involvement of STS in neurosteroid biochemical pathways, and several lines of evidence indicate that neurosteroids interact with neurotransmitters.
