A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Sex determination in humans is mediated through the expression of a testis-determining gene on the Y chromosome. In humans, a candidate gene for the testis-determining factor (TDF) that encodes a protein with a putative DNA-binding motif and has been isolated is termed SRY. Here we describe an XY sex-reversed female with pure gonadal dysgenesis who harbors a de novo nonsense mutation in the SRY open reading frame (SRY-orf). This single-basepair substitution results directly in the formation of a termination codon in the putative SRY DNA-binding motif, presumably leading to a nonfunctional gene product. This brings the number of reported XY sex-reversed females with de novo mutations in the known SRY-orf to three, each occurring in the putative DNA-binding domain. This provides further evidence to support SRY being TDF in humans and also indicates the functional importance of the putative DNA-binding domain of the SRY protein.
