Df(2L)BSC168 was isolated as a FLP recombinase-induced recombination 
event involving PBac{WH}CG11030[f07078] and P{XP}eIF-4a[d06487]. The 
deletion was isolated as a chromosome lacking miniwhite markers in 
progeny of P{hsFLP}1, y[1] w[1118]; 
PBac{WH}CG11030[f07078]/P{XP}eIF-4a[d06487] males crossed to w[1118]; 
P{hs-hid}2, wg[Sp-1]/CyO females. These males 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}BSC168 from the segment of 
PBac{WH}CG11030[f07078] to the left of its FRT site and the segment 
of P{XP}eIF-4a[d06487] 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(2L)BSC168 predicted from the 
Release 4 genomic coordinates of the transposable element insertion 
sites are 25F4;26B2. It failed to complement Vm26Ab[QJ42] and chic[221].
