Genomic Organization of the Hox Gene Cluster.

Expression of Hox genes in deuterostomes – the Hox gene cluster is duplicated in vertebrates. There are eight Hox gene clusters in teleost fishes, showing an additional duplication from the four Hox gene clusters found in the tetrapod vertebrates. (Credit: B J Swalla, Heredity) #NPG
