Although Tas2r genes have been identified in many species (He et al., 2017), including seven canids, the evolution and repertoire of Tas2r genes in raccoon dog (Nyctereutes procyonoides
) were still unknown.

The comparison of the nucleotide sequence of the MC4R gene in American mink revealed 99% similarity with the sequence of the same gene in domestic dog (Canis familiaris), red fox (Vulpes vulpes), arctic fox (Vulpes lagopus), raccoon dog (Nyctereutes procyonoides
), as well as 92% similarity with the sequence of the same gene in European polecat (Mustela putorius).
