Abstract

Understanding of the C. elegans homeobox gene cluster has been significantly expanded since the genes egl-5 and lin-39 have been shown to correspond to homeobox genes in the cluster. Genes of the homeobox cluster not only function as regionally restricted homeotic genes along the anterior-posterior body axis, but also control cell migrations within the affected body regions.
