This study aimed to determine the kinship and genetic diversity between Limousin and Madrasin cattle based on the sex determining region-Y (SRY) gene. SRY gene is used in the analysis of genetic diversity for sex determination based on the paternal pathway (Y chromosome). The DNA samples used for this study were 10 frozen straw of Limousin cattle and 10 samples of Madrasin cattle. The method used in this research was a descriptive analysis by duplex polymerase chain reaction and analyzing the results of the SRY gene sequencing of limousine cattle and Madrasin cattle. In the present study, we showed that the SRY gene of Madrasin cattle and Limousine cattle could be amplified with SRY F and SRY R primers with a PCR product length of 318 bp. Based on these results, Madura, Limousin, and Madrasin cattle had similarities based on the SRY gene (paternal pathway).
