SRY protein



The protein produced from the SRY gene, and is the testis determining factor that triggers a pathway that leads to the development of embryo into becoming a male.


The presence of SRY proteins in humans (and other species) leads to the development of male sex organs whereas the lack of these proteins results in embryo developing as physically female.

Synonym: testis-determining factor
