DDX3Y, a Male-Specific Region of Y Chromosome Gene, May Modulate Neuronal Differentiation.
Tehrān, Iran. In J Proteome Res, Oct 2015
The expression level of 12 Y-linked genes significantly increased over neural differentiation, including RBMY1, EIF1AY, DDX3Y, HSFY1, BPY2, PCDH11Y, UTY, RPS4Y1, USP9Y, SRY, PRY, and ZFY.
Genome-wide Evidence Reveals that African and Eurasian Golden Jackals Are Distinct Species.
Washington, D.C., United States. In Curr Biol, Sep 2015
To test the distinct-species hypothesis and understand the evolutionary history that would account for this puzzling result, we analyzed extensive genomic data including mitochondrial genome sequences, sequences from 20 autosomal loci (17 introns and 3 exon segments), microsatellite loci, X- and Y-linked zinc-finger protein gene (ZFX and ZFY) sequences, and whole-genome nuclear sequences in African and Eurasian golden jackals and gray wolves.

Furthermore other genes on the short arm seem to have a role during spermatogenesis: they are called ZFY (zink finger Y, which encodes a DNA binding protein) and TSPY (expressed in the spermatids nuclei); but the function of these genes is still uncertain, since at this moment no deletions or mutations have been found at this level.

They included colony stimulating factor receptor (CSF2R), SRY (TDF), ZFY, RPS4Y (ribosome protein 4S), ADMLY (Kallman syndrome), AMGL (amelogenin, which we cloned ourselves) and so on.
Male-driven evolution of DNA sequences.
Houston, United States. In Nature, 1993
As the number of X-linked genes used in the study was small and the X-linked and autosomal sequences were non-homologous, and given that the synonymous rate varies among genes, we sequenced the last intron (approximately 1 kb) of the Y-linked and X-linked zinc-finger-protein genes (ZFY and ZFX) in humans, orang-utans, baboons and squirrel monkeys.
