Similarities between a conserved sequence element of homoeo boxes and other genes

FEBS Lett. 1986 Jan 6;194(2):263-6. doi: 10.1016/0014-5793(86)80097-7.


We report here the homology of different genes with an 18-nucleotide sequence element derived from a conserved region of the homoeo boxes. Possible evolutionary relationships are discussed.
