Abstract

Hox genes keep on occuring as key elements in embryogenesis and evolution. Together with other genes they form signaling networks, acting as modulators or participating in the formation of new structures. Specificity and function of hox genes depend on their regulation which is multilayered and complex. The main goal of this review was to present the roles of hox genes during embryogenesis, and to point out the basic aspects of regulation. More research is needed to completely understand the roles and specificity of hox genes, especially in deciphering hox networks and their regulation, which would make it easier to cure hox-related diseases, and allow better understanding of the roles of hox genes in evolution.
