WHAT DOES HOX MEAN IN ENGLISH?

hox

Hox gene

Hox genes are a group of related genes that control the body plan of an embryo along the anterior-posterior axis. After the embryonic segments have formed, the Hox proteins determine the type of segment structures that will form on a given segment. Hox proteins thus confer segmental identity, but do not form the actual segments themselves Hox genes are defined as having the following properties: ▪ their protein product is a transcription factor ▪ they contain a DNA sequence known as the homeobox ▪ in many animals, the organization of the Hox genes on the chromosome is the same as the order of their expression along the anterior-posterior axis of the developing animal, and are thus said to display colinearity.
