ANTP Class
Families List  Genes List
Lcx Family
The Lcx gene family is defined by a single gene in amphioxus, found adjacent to the Ventx genes (Luke et al. 2001). The gene is expressed in the developing amphioxus gut, giving the gene name Lunchbox (GN Luke, pers. comm.). It is likely that this gene is a highly divergent derivative of Ventx or NK homeobox genes, and is amphioxus-specific.
