Genetic mapping information
The 5' end of this breakpoint corresponds to 3L:16308841 and the 3' end corresponds to 3L:16308845 (release 6 coordinates), meaning that 3bp of genomic sequence is deleted at this breakpoint.
The 5' end of this breakpoint corresponds to 3L:3173046 and the 3' end corresponds to 3L:3173053 (release 6 coordinates), meaning that 6bp of genomic sequence is deleted at this breakpoint.

Notes on Origin
Payne, July 1917.
One of 16 polymorphic inversions identified in the Drosophila Genetic Reference Panel (DGRP) freeze 2 lines.
Cosmopolitan inversion. Isolation: Rio Papaloapan, Mexico.
Recovered as: Cosmopolitan inversion.
Isolation: Koleika, Greece.

Other Comments
Naturally occurring inversions have been categorised into classes according to their geographical distribution and frequencies, In(3L)P belongs to the common Cosmopolitan class.
Cloning of the aberration breakpoints reveals that this inversion has not been derived recently and the distal breakpoint disrupts three transcripts (undefined).
Distribution in Indian populations studied.
Common cosmopolitan inversion. The distribution of this inversion in two populations from Valencia, Spain (one from a cellar and one from a vineyard) has been studied.
Cosmopolitan inversion.
Common cosmopolitan inversion (based on Australasian frequencies of distribution).
Often associated with In(3R)P. Useful as a balancer for 3L. Allows only about 0.02% crossing over between ru and st. Balancers contain recessive lethals or Me. Balancers for all of chromosome 3 made by combining In(3L)P with In(3R)P or In(3R)C. Found in many wild populations (e.g., Warters, 1944, Texas Univ. Publ. 4445: 129-174; Oshima and Watanabe, 1965, D. I. S. 40: 88; Stalker, 1976, Genetics 82: 323-47; Mettler, Voelker and Mukai, 1977, Genetics 87: 169-76; Knibb, 1982, Genetics 58: 213-21).
