Spatially and temporally regulated expression of myosin heavy chain alternative exons during Drosophila embryogenesis

Abstract

We used alternative exon-specific probes to determine the accumulation of transcripts encoding myosin heavy chain (MHC) isoforms in Drosophila melanogaster embryos. Six isoforms accumulate in body wall muscles. Transverse (external) muscles express a different major form than intermediate and internal muscles, suggesting different physiological properties… (More)
