This gene belongs to the homeobox family of genes. The homeobox genes encode a highly conserved family of transcription factors that play an important role in morphogenesis in all multicellular organisms. Mammals possess four similar homeobox gene clusters HOXA HOXB HOXC and HOXD which are located on different chromosomes and consist of 9 to 11 genes arranged in tandem. This gene HOXC5 is one of several homeobox HOXC genes located in a cluster on chromosome 12. Three genes HOXC5 HOXC4 and HOXC6 share a 5' non-coding exon. Transcripts may include the shared exon spliced to the gene-specific exons or they may include only the gene-specific exons. Two alternatively spliced variants have been described for HOXC5. The transcript variant which includes the shared exon apparently doesn't encode a protein. The protein-coding transcript variant contains gene-specific exons only. [provided by RefSeq Jul 2008]
