Sex determining region Y

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.

Xiangyang et al., Kunming, China. In Yi Chuan, Nov 2015
Increasing studies show that the formation of GB is closely related to genes regulating sexual differentiation and determination (e.g., SRY, WT1, SOX9, Foxl2, TSPY, etc), and is affected by the interaction of genetic and epigenetic regulation.

However, in vivo models using mice which selectively eliminated all VEGFA isoforms: in Sertoli and germ cells (pDmrt1-Cre;Vegfa(-/-)); Sertoli and Leydig cells (Amhr2-Cre;Vegfa(-/-)) or Sertoli cells (Amh-Cre;Vegfa(-/-) and Sry-Cre;Vegfa(-/-)) displayed testes with observably normal cords and vasculature at postnatal day 0 and onwards.

Origins and functional evolution of Y chromosomes across mammals.
Kaessmann et al., Lausanne, Switzerland. In Nature, 2014
The original placental and marsupial (therian) Y, containing the sex-determining gene SRY, emerged in the therian ancestor approximately 180 million years ago, in parallel with the first of five monotreme Y chromosomes, carrying the probable sex-determining gene AMH.
Two Y genes can replace the entire Y chromosome for assisted reproduction in the mouse.
Ward et al., Honolulu, United States. In Science, 2014
Here, we demonstrate that live mouse progeny can also be generated by using germ cells from males with the Y chromosome contribution limited to only two genes, the testis determinant factor Sry and the spermatogonial proliferation factor Eif2s3y. Sry is believed to function primarily in sex determination during fetal life.
Epigenetic regulation of mouse sex determination by the histone demethylase Jmjd1a.
Tachibana et al., Kyoto, Japan. In Science, 2013
We observed male-to-female sex reversal in mice lacking the H3K9 demethylase Jmjd1a and found that Jmjd1a regulates expression of the mammalian Y chromosome sex-determining gene Sry.
TALEN-mediated editing of the mouse Y chromosome.

Zhao et al., Nanjing, China. In Plos One, 2011
findings show that WDR5 is a direct target of SRY; the interaction of WDR5 and SRY activates Sox9 expression; results suggest that, in conjunction with SRY, WDR5 plays an important role in sex determination
