a Stylopod stage: expression patterns of Hox genes during formation of the humerus. b Zeugopod stage: overlapping expression of Hox genes pattern the developing radius and ulna. c Autopod stage: patterned Hox gene expression governs the structural identity of the developing hand
Hox gene expression occurs in three phases in three places in the
limb, corresponding with the development of the stylopod (humerus),
the zeugopod (radius and ulna) and the autopod (carpus and hand)
(Fig. 3 a–c). .
