This article presents experimental findings of four new Drosophila homeobox genes, which encode DNA binding proteins and regulate
gene expression during development or in the adult. These newly discovered genes "were detected with oligonucleotide
probes corresponding to an amino acid sequence that is thought to be part of the nucleotide sequence recognition site of homeobox
proteins." These probes were also designed to provide a means of detecting additional sets of homeobox genes.
