"Hox cluster type" genes have sparked intriguing attempts to unite all metazoan animals by a shared pattern of expression and genomic organization of a specific set of regulatory genes. The basic idea, the zootype concept, claims the conservation of a specific set of "Hox cluster type genes" in all metazoan animals, i.e., in the basal diploblasts as well as in the derived triploblastic animals. Depending on the data used and the type of analysis performed, different opposing views have been… CONTINUE READING
