Df(1)BSC534 was isolated as a FLP recombinase-induced recombination 
event involving P{XP}d00131 and PBac{WH}Gr2a[f01153]. The deletion 
was isolated as a chromosome lacking miniwhite markers in progeny of 
P{XP}d00131/PBac{WH}Gr2a[f01153]; MKRS, P{hsFLP}86E/+ females crossed 
to Binsinscy/Y males. These females 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}BSC534 from the segment of P{XP}d00131 
to the left of its FRT site and the segment of PBac{WH}Gr2a[f01153] 
to the right of its FRT site. Its presence was verified using the PCR 
methods and primers described in Parks et al. The cytological 
breakpoints of Df(1)BSC534 predicted from the Release 5 genomic 
coordinates of the transposable element insertions sites are 1D1;2A3. 
It failed to complement fs(1)N[4].
