Dated: Unknown
Background: The following information was included in a preprint of Bellen et al., 1989, Genes Dev.  3:1288--1300 
(FBrf0049801) and/or in tables of staining pattern information provided when the stocks were donated to the HHMI P
Stock Center (subsequently transferred to the Bloomington Stock Center), but apparently did not appear in the
published version of the paper.
FlyBase has an insertion record and lacZ allele for each of these, but no lacZ expression pattern is associated
with the lacZ allele. In one case, a mutant allele also needs to be created and the insertion renamed accordingly.
