Lmx Family
There are two members of the Lmx gene family in humans. There is one amphioxus orthologue and two Drosophila orthologues (CG4328, CG32105). Lmx is 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).
