Description

A subgroup of homeobox genes, which play an important role in the developmental processes of a variety of multicellular organisms, Hox genes have been shown to play a critical role in vertebrate pattern formation. Hox genes can be thought of as general purpose control genes-that is, they are similar in many organisms and direct the same processes in a variety of organisms, from mouse, to fly, to human.
