Dprx Family
The Dprx gene family contains a single gene in human, and orthologous loci have been found in dog and horse, though not in rodents where the gene has been lost (Zhong and Holland 2011). It has been hypothesized that Dprx arose by tandem duplication and extreme divergence of the Otx gene CRX (Booth and Holland 2007), and distribution data suggest this occurred specifically in the placental mammals. The gene has generated seven retrotransposed pseudogenes in humans.
