Meis Family
The Meis gene family (within the TALE class) is equivalent to the Meis gene family within the MEIS gene class of Bürglin and Mukherjee (2007). The gene family contains three human genes, two human pseudogenes, one Drosophila gene (hth) and one amphioxus gene. Proteins encoded by this gene family, like Pknox and Pbx families, are implicated as cofactors of Hox proteins (Moens and Selleri 2006).
