Dmbx Family
There is a single member of this gene family in human and amphioxus. Drosophila lacks the gene family; this is secondary loss, because there is a probable orthologue (manacle) in the cnidarian Hydra vulgaris. Expression of the amphioxus, ascidian and vertebrate Dmbx genes has been compared in an investigation of midbrain evolution (Takahashi and Holland 2004).
