HOX genes are a family of regulatory genes that encode transcription factors and are essential during embryonic development. These genes are highly conserved between species such that all metazoans possess a common genetic system for embryonic patterning. This system is conserved in the reproductive tract, where HOX genes are involved in the development of… CONTINUE READING
