... The mir-10 genes are found within the Hox gene clusters ... In mammals there are four Hox gene clusters, these contain five genes encoding miRNAs (mir-10a, mir-10b, mir-196a-1, mir-196a-2 and mir-196b) ... The mir-10a gene is located upstream of Hoxb4 and the mir-10b gene is located upstream of Hoxd4 ...
Gene Family
... A gene family is a set of several similar genes, formed by duplication of a single original gene, and generally with similar biochemical functions ... One such family are the genes for human haemoglobin subunits the ten genes are in two clusters on different chromosomes, called the α-globin and β-globin loci ... Genes are categorized into families based on shared nucleotide or protein sequences ...

Famous quotes containing the word clusters:

    What wondrous life in this I lead!
    Ripe apples drop about my head;
    The luscious clusters of the vine
    Upon my mouth do crush their wine;
    The nectarine and curious peach
    Into my hands themselves do reach;
    Stumbling on melons, as I pass,
    Ensnared with flowers, I fall on grass.
    Andrew Marvell (1621–1678)
