Kafatos Fly Stocks: Termination Notice
Due to our lab relocation, we will be terminating 50%-70% of our
existing lab stocks of Drosophila. Anybody desiring flies from Kafatos
publications (1983 - 1993) should notify us by June 30, 1994. Most of
these include transgenic flies carrying various promoter-reporter
constructs to test chorion gene expression (from Drosophila melanogaster
and other Drosophila species, moth) and amplification. Other lines
include those used to study Drosophila integrins and Elf-1/grainyhead.
Relevant papers are published by F.C. Kafatos and the following authors:
B. Bienz-Tadmor, S. Bray, N. Brown, C. Delidakis, A. Dokidis, M.
Fenerjian, J. Grinblat, H. Kashevsky, B. Mariani, A. Mitsialis, H. Nguyen,
C. Romano, P. Snyder, N. Spoerel, C. Swimmer, V. Veletza.
We will be maintaining at EMBL/Heidelberg some lines: selected
chorion promoter-lacZ strains (B. Mariani, M. Shea, P. Tolias), female
steriles from Komitopolou et al. (1983 Genetics 105:897), and
amplification mutants from Orr et al. (1984 PNAS 81:3773).
Requests should be directed to Dr. Len Dobens (phone 617-495-3292;
FAX 617-495-4312; E-mail: dobens at biosun.harvard.edu) by June 30, 1994.
The stocks will be terminated during July. Not all stocks have been saved
from all publications - please inquire. We will do our best to
accommodate requests and provide sufficient documentation on the strains
that you will receive. Thank you for your consideration.
