Barx Family
Originally thought to be the vertebrate orthologues of the Drosophila BarH genes, the Barx genes are now considered a distinct gene family, possibly deuterostome-specific (instead, the vertebrate Barhl genes are more closely related to insect BarH genes; see supplementary data to Holland et al. 2007). Human has two Barx genes and amphioxus one gene.
