Leutx Family
The Leutx (leucine twenty homeobox) gene family contains a single gene in human. Closely similar sequences are not found outside primates, although sequences that are almost certainly orthologues (albeit with highly divergent sequence) are present in several other placental mammals, though not mouse (Zhong and Holland 2011). It has been hypothesized that Leutx arose by tandem duplication and extreme divergence of the Otx gene CRX (Holland et al. 2007).
