Description

β-Gal Assay Kits provide convenient, accurate quantitation of β-Gal expression.  The Kits contain reagents sufficient for 500 micro assays per 96-well plate
β-Galactosidase Assay Kit: Red (CPRG) Highly sensitive, uses the red substrate chlorophenol red-β-D-galactopyranoside (CPRG) to determine β-gal expression levels.  The CPRG kit is ideal for conditions in which β-galactosidse expression levels are low.
β-Galactosidase Assay Kit: Yellow (ONPG) Measures development of the bright yellow substrate o-nitrophenyl-β-D-galactopyranoside (ONPG). The ONPG kit provides a quick method for quantifying β-galactosidase expression in cultured cells.
X-Gal Staining Assay Kit: Designed for sensitive and low-background visualization of cultured cells or tissues containing cells carrying the lacZ gene that codes for β-galactosidase enzyme.  Cells transfected with a β-gal-expressing plasmid appear blue* under the microscope.
*The β-galactosidase enzyme catalyzes the hydrolysis of X-gal (5-bromo-3-indoyl-β-D- galactopyranoside) yielding 5-bromo-4-chloro-3-hydroxyindole which spontaneously converts into 5,5'-dibromo-4,4'-dichloro-indigo, an intensely blue insoluble product.
