Orthodenticle-related (Otx) proteins are a highly conserved class of homeobox-containing transcription factors found in a wide range of organisms. They function in numerous developmental events, most prominently, anterior head patterning in insects and vertebrates. In the sea urchin, Strongylocentrotus purpuratus, an orthodenticle-related protein called SpOtx is believed to direct the activation of the aboral ectoderm-specific Spec2a gene and more generally the differentiation of aboral… CONTINUE READING
