  • homeobox
  • During development, the homeobox gene Cdx2 exerts a homeotic function, providing the positional information necessary for correct specification of the midgut endoderm. (bmj.com)
  • Regulation
  • Taken together, these results show that genes involved in plena regulation have additional roles in the formation of organs, perhaps reflecting underlying mechanisms for coupling homeotic gene expression to morphogenesis. (biologists.org)
  • function
  • The specificity of homeotic gene function. (nih.gov)
  • In turn, the development of floral structures depends on the action of three classes of floral homeotic genes, A, B and C. These ABC floral homeotic genes function in overlapping domains to specify different floral organ identities. (biologists.org)
  • Because of their important roles in development, changes in the function and expression patterns of homeotic genes may have played a major role in the evolution of different body plans. (harvard.edu)
  • Reduction of bapx1 function in moz mutants causes loss of both first and second arch joints, providing functional genetic evidence that bapx1 contributes to the moz- deficient homeotic pattern. (biologists.org)
  • Complex
  • For the Homeotic Complex (HOM/Hox) family of homeoproteins, specificity in vivo is likely to be in part determined by subtle differences in the DNA binding properties inherent in these proteins. (nih.gov)
  • Instead, this study found that Pc-repressive complex 1 (PRC1) purifies with coactivators Fs(1)h [female sterile (1) homeotic] and Enok/Br140 during embryogenesis. (sdbonline.org)
  • role
  • This action in adults is functionally and geographically distinct from its homeotic role during gut development. (bmj.com)
