Entrez Gene Summary for SRY Gene

  • This intronless gene encodes a transcription factor that is a member of the high mobility group (HMG)-box family of DNA-binding proteins. This protein is the testis-determining factor (TDF), which initiates male sex determination. Mutations in this gene give rise to XY females with gonadal dysgenesis (Swyer syndrome); translocation of part of the Y chromosome containing this gene to the X chromosome causes XX male syndrome. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for SRY Gene

SRY (Sex Determining Region Y) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SRY include sry-related 46,xy dsd and 46,xy cgd and 45,x/46,xy mixed gonadal dysgenesis. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Androgen Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding and transcription factor binding. An important paralog of this gene is SOX3.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SRY Gene

  • Transcriptional regulator that controls a genetic switch in male development. It is necessary and sufficient for initiating male sex determination by directing the development of supporting cell precursors (pre-Sertoli cells) as Sertoli rather than granulosa cells (By similarity). In male adult brain involved in the maintenance of motor functions of dopaminergic neurons (By similarity). Involved in different aspects of gene regulation including promoter activation or repression (By similarity). Promotes DNA bending. SRY HMG box recognizes DNA by partial intercalation in the minor groove. Also involved in pre-mRNA splicing. Binds to the DNA consensus sequence 5-[AT]AACAA[AT]-3.

  • 46,XY sex reversal 1 (SRXY1) [MIM:400044]: A condition characterized by male-to-female sex reversal in the presence of a normal 46,XY karyotype. Patients manifest rapid and early degeneration of their gonads, which are present in the adult as streak gonads, consisting mainly of fibrous tissue and variable amounts of ovarian stroma. As a result these patients do not develop secondary sexual characteristics at puberty. The external genitalia in these subjects are completely female, and Muellerian structures are normal. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:10670762, ECO:0000269 PubMed:10721678, ECO:0000269 PubMed:10843173, ECO:0000269 PubMed:10852465, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12107262, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12793612, ECO:0000269 PubMed:1339396, ECO:0000269 PubMed:1415266, ECO:0000269 PubMed:1483689, ECO:0000269 PubMed:1570829, ECO:0000269 PubMed:17063144, ECO:0000269 PubMed:2247149, ECO:0000269 PubMed:7717397, ECO:0000269 PubMed:7776083, ECO:0000269 PubMed:7985018, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8019555, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8105086, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8353496, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8447323, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9450909, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9521592, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9678356, ECO:0000269 Ref.41, ECO:0000269 Ref.47}.
