    ..These findings for the first time demonstrate a specific involvement for Hox genes in patterning the muscular circulatory system, and suggest a mechanism of broad relevance for animal heart patterning. ..

    ..These results suggest that the Hox genes may also play some role in the positioning of the embryonic heart field and the determination of A-P polarity in the vertebrate embryonic heart tube. ..
