Members of the LIM homeobox gene family, such as LHX8,encode transcription regulators that share common structuralfeatures. They all contain 2 tandemly repeated cysteine-richdouble-zinc finger motifs, called LIM domains, in addition to ahomeodomain. The homeodomain is a DNA-binding domain, and the LIMdomains are essential for regulating the activity of thesemolecules by interacting with other proteins. Members of the LIMhomeobox gene family are required for the patterning or thespecification and differentiation of different cell types duringembryonic development (Zhao et al., 1999 [PubMed10611327]).
