Domain relationships


This entry represents a homeobox transcription factor KN domain conserved from fungi to human and plants [PMID: 17429685]. Genes encoding these proteins were first identified as TALE homeobox proteins in eukaryotes, (including KNOX and MEIS genes) [PMID: 17429685, PMID: 8537382, PMID: 9336443]. They have been classified [PMID: 17665086, PMID: 19734295, PMID: 21557080].
