Df(2L)BSC171 was isolated as a FLP recombinase-induced recombination 
event involving PBac{RB}CG2818[e00947] and P{XP}d07508. The deletion 
was isolated as a chromosome lacking miniwhite markers in progeny of 
P{hsFLP}1, y[1] w[1118]; PBac{RB}CG2818[e00947]/P{XP}d07508 males 
crossed to w[1118]; P{hs-hid}2, wg[Sp-1]/CyO females. These males 
were heat shocked as larvae as described in Parks et al., Nature 
Genetics 36: 288-292, 2004 (FBrf0175003). This cross and crosses in 
preceding and succeeding generations maintained the original genetic 
background of the Exelixis insertion stocks (Thibault et al., Nature 
Genetics 36: 283-287, 2004; FBrf0175002). The recombination event 
generated the genetic element P+PBac{XP5.RB3}BSC171 from the segment 
of PBac{RB}CG2818[e00947] to the left of its FRT site and the segment 
of P{XP}d07508 to the right of its FRT site. Its presence was 
verified using the PCR methods and primers described in Parks et al. 
with the substitution of the primer 5'-CCAATGCGTTTATTTCAGGTCACG-3' 
for the RB3' plus or RB3' minus primer in the Hybrid PCR protocol in 
the Supplementary Methods. The cytological breakpoints of 
Df(2L)BSC171 predicted from the Release 4 genomic coordinates of the 
transposable element insertion sites are 24C1;24C6. It failed to 
complement bowl[2].
