Y chromosome diversity and paternal origin of Chinese cattle.
China. In Mol Biol Rep, 31 Dec 2013
To determine the Y chromosome genetic diversity and paternal origin of Chinese cattle, 369 bulls from 17 Chinese native cattle breeds and 30 bulls from Holstein and four bulls from Burma were analyzed using a recently discovered USP9Y marker that could distinguish between taurine and indicine cattle more efficiently.
USP10: friend and foe.
Leiden, Netherlands. In Cell, 2010
In this issue, Yuan et al. (2010) identify the deubiquitinating protease USP10 as a new regulator of p53 in the DNA damage response and tumor development.
Spermatogenesis in a man with complete deletion of USP9Y.
Siena, Italy. In N Engl J Med, 2009
Deletions in the azoospermia factor region AZFa on the human Y chromosome and, more specifically, in the region that encompasses the ubiquitin-specific peptidase 9, Y-linked gene USP9Y have been implicated in infertility associated with oligospermia and azoospermia.
Role of the AZFa candidate genes in male infertility.
Padova, Italy. In J Endocrinol Invest, 2000
It contains three genes, USP9Y, DBY and UTY, but only the former two can be at present considered candidate genes for the infertile phenotype associated with deletion of this interval.
