We have used both SpeI and NheI in our lab; neither of these cut within PZ
and so rescue both sites of the insert. We usually then subclone the
result into Bluescript, cutting out most of the vector with HindIII (the
vector cuts to two ~7kb bands, leaving the right hand [rosy-proximal] P
repeat with the insert).

If you want to look for more restriction sites, you can download the
vector sequence from FlyBase:
