Pknox Family
The Pknox gene family as defined here is equivalent to the PREP gene family within the MEIS class of Bürglin and Mukherjee (2007). Human has two members of the gene family and amphioxus has one. Drosophila lacks the gene family, although it has been found in other insects (Bürglin and Mukherjee 2007). Proteins encoded by this gene family, like Meis and Pbx families, are implicated as cofactors of Hox proteins (Moens and Selleri 2006).
