RS lines (RS3 and RS5)

FRT-carrying insertions can be used as docking sites

RS3 and RS5 FRT-carrying insertions can be used as docking sites for FLP-mediated transgene remobilisation, using the split white+ marker strategy.

The DrosDel deletions were generated by using RS lines.

The stocks are from the Szeged Drosophila Stock Centre, Szeged University, Hungary.

Detail information will be obtained from DrosDel home page at University of Cambridge, UK.


At present, balancers are not shown in the genotype. Some stocks have a balancer chromosome, and the others not. Please carefully examine the line before you use.
Balancers usually used are FM7h for X, SM6a for the 2nd and TM6C, Sb1 for the 3rd.
