Abstract

A novel homeobox-containing cDNA from the developing human brain has been cloned and sequenced. The transcript is most closely related to the Distal-less (DU) homeogene of Drosophila melanogaster and to the Dix genes in the mouse, specifically to Dlx-2. As such, it is the first report of a human Dll-like gene.
