Member of large scale dataset(s)

A set of ~800 largely isogenic deficiency stocks created by FLP-induced recombination between FRT-carrying transgenic insertions; molecularly defined deletion endpoints correspond to initial location of the progenitor insertions. Designed to fill gaps in deletion coverage and breakpoint placement; also used to replace older available deficiencies that have not been molecularly mapped.

Genetic mapping information

Breakpoint based on release 3 sequence coordinate from Thibault et al., 2004, Supplementary Table 2 (FBrf0174227) or 3 (FBrf0174228), converted to release 5 coordinate.

Breakpoint from FlyBase's release 5 sequence location of progenitor insertion.

Comments on Cytology

Exelixis, Inc. determined the insertion site of P{XP}d06287 to be Release 3 genomic coordinate 688843 on chromosome arm 3L and the insertion site of PBac{WH}f03465 to be Release 3 genomic coordinate 807399 on arm 3L. The Gene Disruption project determined the insertion site of P{XP}d06287 to be Release 3 genomic coordinate 688835 on arm 3L. The P{XP}d06287 insertion site corresponds to 61C8 and the PBac{WH}f03465 insertion site corresponds to 61D2 on the Release 3 and Release 5 genome maps. Consequently, the cytological breakpoints of Df(3L)BSC440 are predicted to be 61C8;61D2.
