The SRY gene is found on the p arm of the Y chromosome and encodes for the 204 amino acid sex-determining region Y protein (TDF).TDF is a DNA binding protein that enhances other transmission factors, and a transcription factor itself.The diagnosis was XX sex reversal, with a XX male phenotype.OBJECTIVE: Testicular differentiation can occur in the absence of the Y chromosome giving XX sex-reversed males.After laparotomy or gonadal biopsy, the diagnosis was 46, XX true hermaphroditism in five, and XX male in 15.MEASUREMENTS: Blood samples were obtained from all patients for hormonal and molecular studies.DESIGN: Endocrinological and genetic studies were conducted in 20 XX sex-reversed patients.PATIENTS: Twenty patients with various phenotypes were studied. Ten presented ambiguous external genitalia (Prader's stages II to IV).


If the SRY gene on a Y chromosome is sufficiently mutated that functioning TDF is not produced, the embryo will develop into an XY female with hypogonadism (46, XY sex reversal 1, SRXY1, OMIM:400044) Similarly, if an SRY gene is translocated on to an X chromosome, it is possible to have an XX male(46, XX sex reversal 1, SRXX1, OMIM:400045.Karyotype analysis of peripheral leukocytesrevealed 44 autosomes and an XX sex chromosome complement.The infant closely resembles 3 infants withrenal agenesis reported by Carpentier and Potter.All affected dogs inherited this trait from the foundation sire of this colony.Thus, the disease-causing mutation should be identical by descent in all affected dogs.Basal levels of testosterone, oestradiol and pituitary gonadotrophins were measured by RIA.
