Cyt-b5 transcripts are detected in late embryonic and pupal RNAs on northern blots. They are detected predominantly in muscles by in situ hybridization. Specifically, they are found in somatic and visceral muscles in late embryos and in indirect flight muscles, tergosternal muscles, abdominal ventral muscles, and leg muscles in late pupae. Mhc transcripts are also found in these tissues.

Please Note This section lists cDNAs and ESTs that fall within the genomic extent of the gene model, which may include cDNAs and ESTs of genes within introns, or of overlapping genes. Please see GBrowse for alignment of the cDNAs and ESTs to the gene model.
For each fully sequenced cDNA the DGRC maintains various forms of the cDNA (e.g tagged or untagged) in several different host vectors for subsequent cloning and expression in Drosophila and Drosophila cell lines.
In a sample of 79 genes with multiple introns, 33 showed significant heterogeneity in G+C content among introns of the same gene and significant positive correspondence between the intron and the third codon position G+C content within genes. These results are consistent with selection adding against preferred codons at the start of genes.
Encodes a cytochrome-b homologue that is expressed specifically in muscles; expression is concordant with that of Mhc.
