Lahn and Page (1997) isolated testis cDNAs corresponding to XKRY (XK-related protein on Y chromosome) and other genes located in the nonrecombining portion of the Y chromosome (NRY). See BPY1 (400012). The predicted XKRY protein is similar to XK (314850), a putative membrane transport protein. The authors noted that XKRY is one of several genes that appear to exist in multiple copies on the Y chromosome and are expressed specifically in testis.
By analysis of a panel of partial Y chromosomes, Lahn and Page (1997) mapped the XKRY gene to region 5L on the long arm of the human Y chromosome.
