Up to now around 170 different homeobox genes have been cloned from vertebrate genomes. A compilation of the various isolates from mouse, chick, frog, fish and man is presented in the form of a concise checklist, including the designations from the original publications. Putative homologs from different species are aligned, and key characteristics of embryonic or adult expression domains, as well as mutant phenotypes are briefly indicated.
