Hox Genes: It's All a Matter of Context


Hox Genes: It's All a Matter of Context

Ingrid Lohmann et al. Curr Biol. .


Recent studies provide compelling new evidence that Hox gene effects depend on fine-structure spatial and temporal information. Further, in a specific cell type, only one or a few downstream genes may mediate Hox morphogenetic functions. If this is generally true, it will have important implications for how Hox regulatory networks operate and evolve.
