Hox6-8 Family
Hox paralogy groups 6, 7 and 8 were all present in the common ancestor of vertebrates and amphioxus, and each group is represented by a single gene in amphioxus and three genes in human. The genes are grouped into a single gene family through lack of information: it is unclear how many of these genes existed in the common ancestor of Drosophila and vertebrates. The genes are collectively orthologous to the Drosophila genes Antp, ftz, Ubx and abdA.
