- n. Plural form of homeobox.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Burton PM, Mazza ME, Kwong GK, Mullikin JC, et al. (2006) The cnidarian-bilaterian ancestor possessed at least 56 homeoboxes: evidence from the starlet sea anemone, Nematostella vectensis.
Miller DJ (1992) Genomes of diploblastic organisms contain homeoboxes: sequence of eveC, an even-skipped homologue from the cnidarian Acropora formosa.
Now we get pushed around by homeoboxes, sorted by adhesion molecules, made to line up and form tissues ... some days it's enough to make you wanna apoptose.
