Df(2R)BSC326 was isolated as a FLP recombinase-induced recombination 
event involving P{XP}d04812 and PBac{WH}phtf[f01263]. The deletion 
was isolated as a chromosome lacking miniwhite markers in progeny of 
P{hsFLP}1, y[1] w[1118]; P{XP}d04812/PBac{WH}phtf[f01263] 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.WH5}BSC326 from the segment 
of P{XP}d04812 to the left of its FRT site and the segment of 
PBac{WH}phtf[f01263] to the right of its FRT site. Its presence was 
verified using the PCR methods and primers described in Parks et al. 
Exelixis, Inc. determined the insertion site of P{XP}d04812 to be at 
Release 3 genomic coordinate 1374527 on chromosome arm 2R. This 
corresponds to 42A14 on both the Release 3 and 5 genome maps. The 
predicted position of PBac{WH}phtf[f01263] on the Release 5 map is 
42C7 . Consequently, the cytological breakpoints of Df(2R)BSC326 are 
predicted to be 42A14;42C7. It failed to complement jing[01094] and
