High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Preputial glands are
exocrine glands that are located in front of the genitals of some
mammals (including mice) and produce pheromones. The preputial
glands of female animals are sometimes called clitoral glands. The
best studied preputial glands are those of the House Mouse and the
Brown Rat, because these two species are important model organisms
and because their preputial glands are very similar in structure to
the (much smaller) sebaceous glands of humans. The preputial glands
of male musk deer produce strong-smelling musk which is of economic
importance as it is used in perfumes. There is debate about whether
humans have functional homologues to preputial glands. Preputial
glands were first noted by Edward Tyson and in 1694 fully described
by William Cowper who named them Tyson's glands after Tyson.
