How Hox genes can shed light on the place of echinoderms among the deuterostomes

  title={How Hox genes can shed light on the place of echinoderms among the deuterostomes},
  author={Bruno David and Rich Mooi},
The Hox gene cluster ranks among the greatest of biological discoveries of the past 30 years. Morphogenetic patterning genes are remarkable for the systems they regulate during major ontogenetic events, and for their expressions of molecular, temporal, and spatial colinearity. Recent descriptions of exceptions to these colinearities are suggesting deep phylogenetic signal that can be used to explore origins of entire deuterostome phyla. Among the most enigmatic of these deuterostomes in terms… CONTINUE READING
