Tprx Family
The Tprx gene family contains one probable functional gene in human, plus one tandem duplicate that is possibly non-functional (TPRX2P)); this sit either side of the Otx-family CRX gene. The dog genome shows the same arrangement (Zhong and Holland 2011). Human also has two clear retrotransposed pseudogenes (TPRX1P1, TPRX1P2) and one unusual, probably non-functional, expressed sequence (TPRXL); Booth and Holland (2007). The TPRX1 locus is incorrectly annotated in the NCBI and EBI assemblies, as EST data indicates an additional 5' exon and different homeobox sequence. Mouse is lacking clear Tprx orthologues although the Crxos1 gene occupies the same location (Zhong and Holland 2011).
