The paired-like class of homeobox genes contains numerous distinct families, many of which have been implicated in a variety of developmental functions. We report the isolation and expression of a gene with high similarity to Drosophila melanogaster homeobrain from the polychaete annelid Capitella sp. I. The homeobrain-like (hbnl) gene is a paired-like gene that contains a conserved homeodomain, octapeptide region, alanine stretches, and an OAR domain. Gene orthology analyses of the homeodomain… CONTINUE READING
