I have read several developmental Drosophila papers recently that use the stock "Oregon-K". However, I can find *zero* information about this stock. I am familiar with Oregon-R, and were it cited in only a single paper, I would assume it's a typo. However, allegedly the stock is available from a stock-center in India (listed separately from Oregon-R), but I can not find it anywhere else.
Does anyone know anything about this stock? How it it different from Oregon-R? Does anyone in the US have a copy; I would like to use them in an experiment, but want avoid having to deal with the USDA and getting an import permit.
