High impact information on Hoxc11

  • As described in this study, removal of the last Hox11 paralogous member, Hoxc11, results in the complete loss of metanephric kidney induction [1].
  • Loss of fibula in mice overexpressing Hoxc11 [2].
  • This interpretation is further corroborated by Hoxc11 reporter gene expression in the joint areas at embryonic day 15.5, suggesting an involvement of the periarticular perichondrium in generating the mutant phenotype [2].
  • Hoxc11 mRNA is found in the most posterior region of the developing embryo commencing at 9.5 days of gestation [3].
  • The Hoxc11 gene encodes a 304 amino acid protein which is translated from a 2.2 kb transcript, derived from two exons [3].

Anatomical context of Hoxc11


Other interactions of Hoxc11

  • As a prerequisite for studying the role of the AbdB-related Hoxc genes during limb development, we have isolated and mapped the three predicted AbdB-related Hoxc-11, -12, and -13 loci, thus defining the 5' end of the Hoxc cluster [4].
