This study investigated the embryonic expression and function of the Hox gene Lox1 in the simple, well-characterized central nervous system (CNS) of the medicinal leech Hirudo medicinalis. Lox1 was expressed in an anterior-posterior domain, extending from the posterior aspect of the fourth segment (rostral neuromere 4, R4) to the seventeenth segment… CONTINUE READING
