Drgx Family
There is a single member of the Drgx gene family in the human and mouse genomes. The human DRGX gene was previously known as PRRXL1 and DRG11; the mouse orthologue is Prrxl1 also known as Drg11 (referring to expression in dorsal root ganglia). The symbol PRRXL1 is misleading because it is unlikely that this gene is closely related to the Prrx gene family (Holland et al. 2007). There are orthologues in several invertebrates including Drosophila, honeybee, beetle and amphioxus.
