X-α-Gal & X-Gluc & MUG
Gold Biotechnology provides high quality chromogenic and fluorogenic substrates used in a variety of bacterial, plant and yeast screening or detection techniques. The GUS reporting system is a common plant molecular reporter system for researchers due to its stable and flexible nature in varying detergents. GoldBio offers X-Gluc and MUG, two of the most popular substrates for fluorescent or chromatic, plant and tissue culture GUS detection. Additionally, GoldBio’s X-α-Gal is an ideal substrate for studying protein-protein interactions in the Yeast-Two hybrid system. GoldBio’s substrates furnish our researchers the benefit of the qualitative or quantitative information they need, but at a fraction of the price, so that they can focus their research money on what really matters.

Description

4-Methylumbelliferyl beta-D-glucuronide (MUG) is a fluorogenic substrate for beta-glucuronidase (GUS). Upon cleavage, MUG yields blue fluorescence seen under UV light.

This substrate is commonly used for the detection of Escherichia coli through its ability to detect activity of beta-glucuronidase, which is encoded by uidA. GUS activity is tested in minimal medium o-nitrophenyl-beta-D-galactopyranoside (MMO)-MUG.

It is ideal for plant molecular study as a way to examine gene expression under various promoters. And while it works well for measuring activity in plant lysate and leaf disks, it can also work in whole plant assays.

Description

X-Gluc is a chromogenic substrate for beta-glucuronidase (GUS) which is encoded by the gusA (uid A) gene, a widely used reporter gene. Glucuronidase cleaves X-Gluc to produce colorless glucuronic acid and an intense blue precipitate. X-Gluc is often used in GUS staining of plant cells and tissue and in infections caused by E. coli.

Description

X-α-Gal is a chromogenic substrate for α-galactosidase, yielding a blue precipitate. X-α-Gal is used for detecting two-hybrid interactions directly on the culture media. This substrate eliminates the need for β-galactosidase liquid and filter-lift assays in two-hybrid analysis.
Used for species differentiation within the family Enterobacteriaceae and differentiation of Bifidobacteria species from Lactobacilli species.
