Product information "5-Bromo-4-chloro-3-indolyl a-D-galactopyranoside / X-alpha-Gal"

X-alpha-D-Gal is a chromogenic substrate for alpha-galactosidase yielding a blue precipitate (X-alpha-Gal is a chromogenic substrate for yeast galactosidase (MEL1) and is used for detecting GAL4-based yeast two-hybrid interactions directly on agar). Used for species differentiation within the family Enterobacteriaceae and differentiation of Bifidobacteria species from Lactobacillus species (see references). Synonmys: 5-Bromo-4-chloro-3-indolyl a-D-galactopyranoside, X-α-Gal; X-alpha-Gal.
