Disease relevance of Hoxa6

  • Of all common integration sites, a small region of 19 kb in the Hoxa gene locus, mostly between Hoxa6 and Hoxa10, represented 18% of all integrations in the E2a-PBX1 B-cell leukemia and was targeted in 86% of these leukemias compared to 17% in control tumors [1].

Biological context of Hoxa6

  • The specific localization of Hox 1.2 and Hox 1.4 transcripts in the embryonic CNS and the restricted pattern of expression along the rostrocaudal axis are strikingly reminiscent of the expression pattern of Drosophila homeoboxes in the fly embryo and larvae [2].
