In this paper, we review experiments to characterise the developmental expression and the responses to all-trans retinoic acid (RA) of six members of the Hox-2 complex of homeobox-containing genes, during the early development of Xenopus laevis. We showed that the six genes are expressed in a spatial sequence which is colinear with their putative 3' to 5' chromosomal sequence and that five of them are also expressed rapidly after the beginning of gastrulation, in a 3' to 5' colinear temporal… CONTINUE READING
