The ANTP family of homeodomain transcription factors consists of three major groups, the NKL, the extended Hox, and the Hox/ParaHox family. Hox genes and ParaHox genes are often linked in the genome forming two clusters of genes, the Hox cluster and the ParaHox cluster, and are expressed along the major body axis in a nested fashion, following the relative positions of the genes within these clusters, a property called colinearity. While the presences of a Hox cluster and a ParaHox cluster… CONTINUE READING
