Df(1)BSC708 was isolated as a FLP recombinase-induced recombination event involving P{XP}CG1532d07742 and PBac{WH}f01417. The deletion was isolated as a chromosome carrying two copies of the miniwhite marker in progeny of w1118 P{XP}CG1532d07742/ w1118 PBac{WH}f01417; 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{XP3.WH3}BSC708 from the segment of P{XP}CG1532d07742 to the left of its FRT site and the segment of PBac{WH}f01417 to the right of its FRT site. The cytological breakpoints of Df(1)BSC708 predicted from the Release 5 genomic coordinates of the transposable element insertions sites are 19E7;20A4. It failed to complement fliI3.
