The authors disclose 8, albumin transports the pheromone from serum, urine, and extends the time available available for the detection of the pheromone in the environment, without actually masking the pheromone and impede detection. Dissociation of the pheromone-ESA complex the low pH the low pH environment of the bull elephant truck and enhances detection by producing a pulse of the volatile pheromone as the male elephant leads the characteristic flehmen behavior.
