Comments on Cytology

28F1-28F5;32F5-33A2; p1:bk1 ; p1:bk4 ;36F11-37A2;38F6-39A2

Chromosome has been drawn with respect to wild type.

Other breakpoints are not specified.

Deficiency between 35B1-35B2 and 35D5-35D7 and a complex inversion between 29B, 33F, 36F and 39E.

All limits from polytene analysis (FBrf0033158)
