We also found strong conservation in temporal expression patterns of the muscle actin genes--the homologues of the D. melanogaster genes Act57B and Act87E are expressed throughout the life cycle, whereas the other two D. virilis genes, homologous to Act79B and Act88F are specific to pupal and adult stages.

Two of these genes share the same intron position with the two muscle specific actin genes act79B and act88F from Drosophila melanogaster and with one muscle specific actin gene CcA1 from the Mediterranean fruit fly, Ceratitis capitata.
Drosophila genomic DNAs containing a chromosomal locus 87C1 70,000-dalton heat shock protein gene, the locus 79B actin gene, and the 88F actin gene have been used as templates in an in vitro HeLa transcription system.
