DNA Homeobox containing genes!

numerous human genes contain a highly conserved 180-nucleotide motif called a HOMEOBOX.
most homeobox containing genes code for which of the following protein types.

1)cytoplasmic enzymes
2)transport proteins
3)DNA replication enzymes
4)cell surface receptors
5)structural proteins
6)tRNA proteins

Default Answer is 5 ?

Homeo Box genes are expressed during embryological growth.So from the options above i think the answer should be 5)structural proteins

I think it is transcription regulators
as the regulatory proteins are encoded by genes in homeobox and these transcription factors which typically switch on cascades of other genes causing sequential and coordinated gene expression necessary for proper tissue and cell differentiation during embryonic life
