The anterior Hox gene ceh-13 and elt-1/GATA activate the posterior Hox genes nob-1 and php-3 to specify posterior lineages in the C. elegans embryo

Murray et al. study the regulation of the posterior Hox genes nob-1 and php-3 in C. elegans. They observe cellular defects in ceh-13 and nob-1;php-3 mutant embryos indicating that the early embryonic functions of these Hox genes help determine the identity of cells as well as their position within the embryo.
