Hox gene complexity in medaka fish may Be similar to that in pufferfish rather than zebrafish.

Abstract

Changes in number and the genomic organization of Hox genes have played an important role in metazoan body-plan evolution. They make cluster(s), and in vertebrates, each cluster contains different number of Hox genes that have been classified into 13 groups. There are 39 Hox genes in four clusters on different chromosomes in the mammalian genome. In the… (More)
