Shox Family
There are two human genes in the Shox gene family: SHOX and SHOX2. The SHOX (short stature homeobox) gene is located in the PAR1 pseudoautosomal region of the X and Y chromosomes; haploinsufficiency of SHOX is implicated in the short stature phenotype of Turner syndrome patients who lack one copy of the X chromosome (Rao et al. 1997). Shox has been lost from mouse, although Shox2 is present (Zhong and Holland 2011). There is one amphioxus orthologue and one Drosophila orthologue (CG34367).
