Lhx6/8 Family
There are two members of the Lhx6/8 gene family in humans: LHX6 and LHX8. There is one amphioxus orthologue and one Drosophila orthologue (Arrowhead, Awh). The Lhx6/8 gene family is one of four distinct gene families with the prefix Lhx, and one of six gene families in the LIM homeodomain class. Functions and evolution are reviewed by Hobert and Westphal (2000); human and Drosophila sequence comparisons in Holland et al. (2007).
