The Role of Homeobox Genes in Limb Development


The Role of Homeobox Genes in Limb Development

B A Morgan et al. Curr Opin Genet Dev.


Intensive study of the development of the vertebrate limb has led to a conceptual framework for understanding the specification of a limb primordium, the outgrowth of those cells and their organization and differentiation into a functional appendage. During the past few years, a number of homeobox-containing genes have been identified that are likely to play controlling roles in each of these events.
