The name derived from Drosophila gene "paired" (prd) with a box (homeodomain) domain. A transcription factor of the helix-turn-helix structural family, DNA binding, and activating gene expression. In human, there are nine member proteins from Pax1 to Pax9.
Pax6 has been identified as regulating development of the central nervous system, eyes, nose, pancreas and pituitary gland.
