Lhx2/9 Family
There are two members of the Lhx2/9 gene family in humans: LHX2 and LHX9. There are two amphioxus orthologues (generated by a distinct duplication from that in vertebrates) and one Drosophila orthologue (apterous, ap) The Lhx2/9 gene family is one of four distinct gene families with the prefix Lhx, and one of six gene families in the LIM homeodomain class. Functions and evolution are reviewed by Hobert and Westphal (2000); human and Drosophila sequence comparisons in Holland et al. (2007).
