Loss of pigment, curly tails, drop ears) spontaneously emerged in the fox population selected for tameness (Figure 3). Behavior and early development thus seem both to be controlled by genes that regulate neural and endocrine systems (Trut et al. 2009). An example of such genes could be genes controlling plasma glucocorticoids: cortisol levels in blood of tame foxes were five-fold lower than in the non-domesticated foxes (Trut et al. 2009). In addition, the genes of the serotonergic neurotransmitter system may play a role because alterations in this system were found in the tame foxes (summarized in Trut et al.
