This gene belongs to the homeobox family of genes. Thehomeobox genes encode a highly conserved family of transcriptionfactors that play an important role in morphogenesis in allmulticellular organisms. Mammals possess four similar homeobox geneclusters, HOXA, HOXB, HOXC and HOXD, located on differentchromosomes, consisting of 9 to 11 genes arranged in tandem. Thisgene is one of several homeobox HOXD genes located in a cluster onchromosome 2. Deletions that remove the entire HOXD gene cluster orthe 5' end of this cluster have been associated with severe limband genital abnormalities. In addition to effects duringembryogenesis, this particular gene may also play a role in adulturogenital tract function.
