Zinc finger Y-chromosomal protein is a protein that in humans is encoded by the ZFYgene.
This gene encodes a zinc finger-containing protein that may function as a transcription factor. This gene was once a candidate gene for the testis-determining factor (TDF) and was erroneously referred to as TDF.
