Characterization of the human TBX20 gene, a new member of the T-Box gene family closely related to the Drosophila H15 gene.

T-box transcription factors contain a novel type of DNA-binding domain, the T-box domain, and are encoded by an ancient gene family. Four T-box genes, omb, Trg, org-1, and H15, have been identified in Drosophila, whereas in mammals the T-box gene family has expanded, and 12 human T-box genes have been isolated. We have identified a new human T-box gene… (More)
