Emx Family
The Emx gene family is named after the Drosophila gene empty spiracles (ems). Human has two Emx family genes on different chromosomes; amphioxus has three genes with at least two of them tandemly arranged (Minguillon et al. 2002, Takatori et al. 2008). Drosophila has two tandemly arranged Emx genes, ems and E5.
