Df(2R)BSC274 was isolated as a FLP recombinase-induced recombination 
event involving PBac{RB}CG17034[e02894] and P{XP}CG6191[d03529]. The 
deletion was isolated as a chromosome lacking miniwhite markers in 
progeny of P{hsFLP}1, y[1] w[1118]; 
PBac{RB}CG17034[e02894]/P{XP}CG6191[d03529] 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.RB3}BSC274 from the segment of 
PBac{RB}CG17034[e02894] to the left of its FRT site and the segment 
of P{XP}CG6191[d03529] to the right of its FRT site. Its presence was 
verified using the PCR methods and primers described in Parks et al. 
with the substitution of the primer 5'-CCAATGCGTTTATTTCAGGTCACG-3' 
for the RB3' plus or RB3' minus primer in the Hybrid PCR protocol in 
the Supplementary Methods. The cytological breakpoints of 
Df(2R)BSC274 predicted from the Release 4 genomic coordinates of the 
transposable element insertions sites are 50A7;50B4. It failed to 
complement cnn[HK21] and EfTuM[L4569].
