The architectural transcription factor SRY (sex-determining region of the Y chromosome) plays a key role in sex determination as indicated by the fact that mutations in SRY are responsible for XY gonadal dysgenesis in humans. Although many SRY mutations reduce DNA-binding/bending activity, it is not clear how SRY mutations that do not affect interaction with DNA contribute to disease. The SRY high-mobility group domain harbors two nuclear localization signals (NLSs), and here we examine SRY...[Show more]
