Do cnidarians have a ParaHox cluster? Analysis of synteny around a Nematostella homeobox gene cluster.

Abstract:

The Hox gene cluster is renowned for its role in developmental patterning of embryogenesis along the anterior-posterior axis of bilaterians. Its supposed evolutionary sister or paralog, the ParaHox cluster, is composed of Gsx, Xlox, and Cdx, and also has important roles in anterior-posterior development. There is a debate as to whether the cnidarians, as an outgroup to bilaterians, contain true Hox and ParaHox genes, or instead the Hox-like gene complement of cnidarians arose from independent...
