 I am curious to know if agnathans have 2 or 4 hox gene clusters. It
is a widely held view that all vertebrates have four hox clusters but
I have not seen any literature conclusively showing this in agnathans.
This would seem to have important evolutionary and developmental 
implications. Answers and/or references would be greatly appreciated.
