We describe an unusual Antennapedia class homeobox gene from the grasshopper Schistocerca gregaria (Orthoptera, African Plague Locust). Its sequence is not sufficiently similar to that of any other insect Hom-Hox gene to identify it unambiguously, but short conserved elements suggest a relationship to the segmentation gene fushi-tarazu, (ftz). We term it Sg Dax (divergent Antennapedia class homeobox gene). Antibodies raised against the protein encoded by this gene reveal two phases ofpmid:7914164 fatcat:dj3uevncjbbnrh4b5bewn72pca
