List of gene families

List of gene families

This is a list of gene families or gene complexes, that is sets of genes which occur across a number of different species which often serve similar biological functions. These gene families typically encode functionally related proteins, and sometimes the term gene families is a shorthand for the sets of proteins that the genes encode. They may or may not be physically adjacent on the same chromosome.

Genes-encoding regulatory proteins

*Homeobox ("Hox" gene family)
*Achaete-scute complex (Neuroblast formation)
*Krüppel-type zinc finger (ZNF)

Genes-encoding immune system proteins

*Major histocompatibility complex (MHC)

Related protein families

Motor proteins


ignal transducing proteins

*MAP Kinase
*Olfactory Receptor
*Receptor tyrosine kinases


*Cassidy proteins
