Cardiac septal and valvular dysmorphogenesis in mice heterozygous for mutations in the homeobox gene
ROUGH SHEATH2: a Myb protein that represses Knox homeobox genes in maize lateral organ primordia.
The rough sheath2 gene negatively regulates homeobox gene expression during maize leaf development.
Upregulation of the cardiac homeobox gene Nkx2-5 (CSX) in feline right ventricular pressure overload.
5: a novel murine homeobox gene expressed in early heart progenitor cells and their myogenic descendants.
CS is associated with mutations in the homeobox gene HLXB9 and may segregate in families as an autosomal dominant trait, mainly as a result of haploinsufficiency (4, 5).
Involvement of the HLXB9 homeobox gene in Currarino syndrome.
Thus, certain retinoic acid receptors control the specific homeobox genes
that regulate the timing and coordination of craniofacial development.
Lovejoy and his colleagues used chemical probes injected into mouse embryos to establish that one pair of homeobox genes
displays a distinctive molecular footprint in the thumb bones, while another pair leaves a unique calling card in bones of the forearm and the remaining four fingers.
The six family of homeobox genes
in development and cancer.
Other researchers later discovered homeobox genes
with identical DNA sequences in mice, humans and other vertebrates.
