Rhox Family
Genes of the Rhox gene family from a gene cluster on the mammalian X chromosome. The mouse Rhox cluster has 36 genes (Wang and Zhang 2006; Zhong and Holland 2011); the human cluster has three genes: RHOXF1, RHOXF2 and RHOXF2B. The latter two are extremely closely related and most likely a very recent tandem duplication. It is unclear if all three genes are functional (Holland et al. 2007). The Rhox genes are not present in Drosophila or amphioxus.
