CUT Class
Families List  Genes List
Homeobox genes in the CUT class (named after the Drosophila gene cut) encode proteins with one or more ~75-amino acid CUT domains N-terminal to a 60-amino acid homeodomain. There are three families of CUT class genes in the human genome (Onecut, Cux, Satb); a fourth gene family (Cmp) is present in invertebrates but not vertebrates. Bürglin and Cassata have proposed that the Satb genes evolved from Cmp genes. There are seven CUT-class homeobox genes in the human genome and three pseudogenes (Holland et al. 2007); amphioxus has four CUT-class homeobox genes.
