Theoretical Idea on Genetics: SRY Gene and XX chromosomes

Recommended Posts

As I write this I researched on coronavirus. The MRNA is genetic material that makes the coronavirus multiply inside the infected one.

 

Now I wonder if this MRNA can be used to shut off SRY gene and to start multiplying XX chromosomes?

 

What do you think about my Theoretical Idea?

I know SRY deals mainly with Testes development, so not sure what disabling it might cause in a developed individual.

Strictly speaking only need the one X though this can itself cause issues.

Mmm what kind of issues would arise?

Be in the range of either Swyer or Turner Syndrome.

XY gonadal dysgenesis, also known as Swyer syndrome, is a type of hypogonadism in a person whose karyotype is 46,XY. Though they typically have normal female external genitalia,[1] the person has functionless gonads, fibrous tissue termed "streak gonads", and if left untreated, will not experience puberty. Such gonads are typically surgically removed (as they have a significant risk of developing cancer). The typical medical treatment is hormone replacement therapy.[2];

Quote

Turner syndrome (TS), also known as 45,X, or 45,X0, is a genetic condition in which a female is partly or completely missing an X chromosome.[2]

Signs and symptoms vary among those affected.[1] Often, a short and webbed neck, low-set ears, low hairline at the back of the neck, short stature, and swollen hands and feet are seen at birth.[1] Typically, they develop menstrual periods and breasts only with hormone treatment, and are unable to have children without reproductive technology.[1] Heart defects, diabetes, and low thyroid hormone occur more frequently.[1] Most people with TS have normal intelligence; however, many have troubles with spatial visualization that may be needed for mathematics.[1] Vision and hearing problems occur more often.[5]

In theory, if we understood things better we could reprogram without causing issues though.

I have a belief that changing DNA can alter organ production. For example if I replace the Y in XY with a X to equal XX; the long term result will be the former XY person growing female organs. Did I get it on point?

 

Looking forward to your replies.
