HSP70 evolution

About the comparisons to the gram positives... 
Are there any HSP70 sequences from the high-GC gram positives or are
they all from the low-GC, (Bacillus, Clostridium, Mycoplasma) branches? 
It's just that the low-GC's seem to have really been on the move,
evolutionarily speaking.  They're quite divergent.  I just wonder how
the comparison goes when one includes a representative sampling from
the "Actinomycetes"  (high-GC) subgroup of the gram-positives, which
appear a bit more like the gram-negatives in many ways.
