LIM Class
Families List  Genes List
The LIM homeobox gene class includes proteins with LIM domains (zinc-finger-containing protein-protein interaction domains) and a homeodomain. There are other genes that encode LIM domains but not homeodomains; these are not included. The term LIM is derived from the nematode lin-11, mammalian Isl1 and nematode mec-3 genes. There are 12 LIM class homeobox genes in the human genome, in six gene families, and no pseudogenes. There are 7 LIM class homeobox genes in amphioxus (Takatori et al. 2008)
